some simple writing advice that goes a long way - "be specific"  
On her blog, Mary Robinette Kowal shares some simple advice on the subject of "be specific".

Some good advice. Make sure to also read Joe's input in the comments.

Just simple action like they suggest can add so much flavor and texture to a story. I know details are something I often forget and it leads to my stories feeling blah.

Go check the post out! And remember: Be Specific.

You know, right now I'm writing a naughty zombie story. Being more specific would probably be *very* icky indeed.

Ah, but isn't that the whole point? An icky naughty zombie story would certainly stick in people's minds!
