My Office uses the senses of sight and sound. These fit with the picture. We also use senses when describing scientific experiments, in marketing and in PR as well as more creative  and general writing.

Choose two different people, one you like and one you hate. Brainstorm by making a mind map about each of them and editing it. Then write a paragraph about each of them. Writing about things we feel strongly about can see very good or very bad writing. Writers should be careful when writing about topics they like or love. Often such topics result in bad writing. Writing about topics that people dislike or hate often results in good writing!
