Close your eyes. Open your senses. Think about what you hear. Really hear. How can you describe that so a reader will hear the same thing as you? What genre would that sound fit into? A space ship, a yacht, a child’s nursery. Experiment with sound, taste, touch, smell, sight. Make a list of words that fit into each category. Think about what these descriptions could represent. The soft touch of a feather, a lover’s gentle fingers. The taste of acid on your tongue, fear as the monster stalks closer and closer. The smell of dust, a tomb closed for centuries. Infuse your work with these new senses. Bring your reader into the story. Have them walk along side your character. Feel what your character feels, tastes, smells, hears, sees. Look at your work. Find places to pump in the new senses you have listed. Rewrite. Have fun. Revel in all your new words. Then read the new piece. I’m sure it will blow your mind.
