Prayer went into the music selections and the ceremony. We thought of ways to make the wedding fun for our guests. When our special day arrived, everything was in order. We'd done the best possible job and left the results in God's hands.
The books I enjoy put me in the manor house, the spacecraft, the boat, or in the jungle. The distinctive noises, textures, sights, smells, and tastes are all there. The author spares no detail. The heroine isn't wearing a dress, but a yellow, tea-length frock with a handkerchief hem. Little touches add up in our writing.
Do you pay attention to the small touches in your manuscript? What are some of the ways you pull the reader into your setting?
