Use All 5 Senses

Well, not all the time. But keep them in mind.

When writing / rewriting each scene, briefly consider each of the 5 Senses and if you can include some of them in that scene…

You don’t have to do it all the time, as that would get bizarre, but it’s a good question to be in the habit of asking.

Sight
Sound
Taste
Smell
Touch

I’m critiquing a scene where two men are having a silent dinner and I asked the writer if they hear a TV, radio, CD, or other sound… like neighbors or a neighbor’s radio… could end up being an interesting story element.

Another weapon to put in your writing quiver.
