Christopher William Hill: Using Your Senses to Inspire Creative Writing

Christopher William Hill is the author of the fantastically macabre Tales from Schwartzgarten series. Set in the gothic city of Schwartzgarten, these dark tales are hilarious and unsettling in equal measure. The villains are vicious, the settings are sinister and good does not always prevail...

Christopher's deliciously gothic novels are full of rich description and macabre details. Here, Christopher describes how your senses can spark brilliant descriptions of characters and places and provide a fantastic starting point for your story. If you can get a reader to imagine how things smell, sound, feel and taste as well as how they look, you can really bring the world of your story alive!
