Exercise #926: Craft
Let’s flesh out a character. One of my writing buddies creates a sort of dossier on each character he creates. That file has all the background for the character - anything about family, growing up, jobs, dreams and desires, etc. He uses it to help with sticky points in the plot or figuring out how the character would react to a situation.
Today, pick a character and create that character’s background. Then place that character in a short scene where a decision has to be made. For your SUB, please include the background and the scene.
Critiquers, along with the usual grammar, spelling, etc, review, consider these questions:
* Could you relate to this piece? Why or why not?
* Was this piece helpful to you as a writer? Why or why not?
Word limit: 500 for background, 750 for scene.
Please use the subject line
