The best writers are those who dig deep and give details. Instead of saying, my sister, they give her name. Instead of saying, the car, they give the make and model. It always amazes me when I read or edit new writing how something as easy and simple as the addition of details can transform the mundane to the riveting.
The writing prompt for May 14 - take something ordinary and describe it. Explore all the senses: taste, touch, sight, smell and sound.
You might describe the deep red claret of the wine, its smell, the sensation as you drink and it slowly glides down your throat. Describe the shape of the goblet - how it catches the light.
If you don't drink wine, pick something else. It could be your dog, your favorite pair of shoes, a fish market in Sydney, Australia.
