|Details make the setting|
Writers imbued with a strong sense of place — a phenomenon frequently found in those uprooted early in life from a place they felt was home — often instinctually include sensory details. The key is to use spare, precise language. Note that the opening description, short as it is, includes at least three of the five senses. It's also key to use details that exemplify the area you're describing.
Seasons evoke memory, stoke the senses and create memorable settings. They decorate stories as you'd decorate your home, with originality and a unique identity.
