Using The Five Senses: Touch

Stop by Story Empire today to check out Joan Hall’s ongoing series on the Five Senses. This post deals with the 5th one, the sense of Touch, though Joan says she has another sense to share with us when she’s back again. Until then, her post is a really solid reminder of how we can use touch in our writing, something many of us overlook.
