The mind’s eye is watching – but are we getting the word out

Most of us visualize a scene in our head when we are writing. We see the room and characters. We know what they are wearing, what the walls are like and the time of day.
What we so often do, myself included, is neglect to add these descriptions into our story. Of course our minds eye is always working, hardly blinking.
But we often forget to tell our readers. Te clothing fabric, the smells, the glances and the tight fist at his side ready holding emotion back, brings our readers into the world that our minds eye is watching.
This type of detail is extremely important on the revision. Usually first drafts are for plot, scene construction and character movement. No matter when they are inserted in our book, these small details make our stories come alive.
