Thanks for the title, Bjork. And thanks to Romy for a question she asked about taste that got me thinking about the senses. About writing in a sensual way. Sensuality is very different from sexuality, and I think we all get that right? Writing sensually involves using all your senses to describe how a person or a place might look, feel, smell, sound like, or taste. Now most of us get the sight, especially when we’re describing how a person looks, but describing someone in a way that is sensual is quite a different thing.
Romance builds a lot on sensuality. Even the less explicit catgories have sensuality in them. Because sensuality is essential for building up sexual tension and also creating a vivid picture of your characters.
