You want readers to feel like they’re in the world of your story. When the character enters a place, you want the reader to feel like they too have entered that place.
You paint a clear picture of the world but it’s like you’re not actually in the picture, you’re just viewing it from a distance. So how do you close that gap so the reader is pulled into the setting rather than skimming over it?
