Discovering the Relevance of Words
Today’s prompt might sound a little mean, but it’s great strategy when it comes to learning more about character description.
I want you to close your eyes – after you finish reading this – and think about the absolute ugliest person you’ve ever met. Think about their facial features, what their body looks like, what their personality is like, how their voice sounds. Think about the way they walk, how they use their hands, how their breath and body smells. Think about every aspect about that person that makes them the absolute ugliest person you know.
When you are ready, open your eyes and type up the description of that person. Don’t use their name, but rather just describe them in as detailed a way as possible. Have fun with this one!
