Love this, Kim. As a food writer (and food-writing instructor) I’m thinking about sensory writing all the time, and trying not to get stuck in taste alone. As you mention, a little synesthesia goes a long way.

Hi Kim , I have read several Lauren Groff books - loved Matrix especially. It is now out in French, with a better cover than the English version is one is interested in book covers. I plan to include your exercises in my morning writing routine. Thank you.

Fantastic newsletter Kim - really through-provoking insights on sensory perception and description, how challenging it really is given all the nuance, context, timeframes, and points-of-view, but when you get it right, wow, it can make something really come alive and electrify the reading experience.
