My first writing assignment was to write a character study. My first attempt was decent, but knowing that we will have to incorporate this character into a future story, I took another stab at it.
Thomas Morris is a great character, well fleshed out (in my opinion) but I’m not sure what story he has to tell. Someday, he’ll make an appearance somewhere, but not right this minute.
I wound up doing my character study about Kiera, the MC in the flash fiction piece I posted last week. There was nothing in the requirements that stated I couldn’t write about a character who has come into my head and seems to be haunting me right now. After I receive my assignment back, I will post her background here.
While I wait to hear back, I’m going to begin writing some more character studies. I’ve spent some time this week with a notebook close at hand. Every time a person catches my eye, I whip out the notebook and write down as much as I can about them. I think it’ll be fun to bring those notes to life!
