Sensory Exercises — Week 6: Intuition

September 27, 2006

I bet you thought we were finished with these exercises, didn’t you? But we have one more sense with which to deal, a sense very important in your writing. And that’s the Sixth Sense – intuition.

You can make fun of intuition all you wish in real life; however, it’s an important tool in fiction. It doesn’t have to turn the piece into a paranormal one – intuition is partially the ability to comprehend and process information from all the other sense rapidly in addition to being that nebulous, inexplicable “feeling”.

So, this week, you are going to create Story G, which focuses on the intuitive. And you are going to do yet another rewrite of Story A, adding in that sixth sense.

I’m not going to tell you how to craft the intuitive aspect of the story – use your own intuition!
