Helpful Tip

Ana shares a helpful tip for writing vivid scenes. 

Raisley's POV Scene Grounding Exercise:
Where are you?
What do you see?
What is the time?
What is the light like?
What is your body doing?
What can you hear?
What does that sound mean?
What do you feel under your feet?
What do you feel in your hands?
What do you feel on your face?
What do you feel in your heart?
What can you smell?
What can you taste?
Who is with you?
What do you hope will happen?

What do you fear will happen?


  1. Interesting list, but I can't say I've ever analysed a scene like this!

  2. This looks very interesting, something I might try with my next book.

  3. This is a great way to ensure you're including many senses in your descriptions.

  4. So simple, but would definitely deepen the POV of your main character in the scene. This will go in my 'print and keep' file. Thanks! :)
