When you write you want your reader to become absorbed in the world, you create, whether that world is a real place or somewhere you’ve created for your story. Here are my top three tips to make your locations immersive.
Tip One: Rely on your reader’s senses
It might be tempting to describe the location based solely on sight, on what your character can see. But don’t forget they have other sense as well. Talk about how a place smells, how the ground feels under a character’s feet, is it cold, hot, raining? All these things can help draw your reader in and immerse them in your world.
