What do your tea bags smell like?
Good … nice … tasty?
What about aromatic, warm, earthy, melodious, fragrant, smoky?
Makes a difference, doesn’t it… choosing a more sensory word.
It involves the audience.
It activates deeper parts of the brain.
And it’s so easy to do, whatever you are writing.
Choose better words. Get better results.
(Today’s sleepy #StoryHacker #podcast is also about tea bags, because that’s how I roll.)
