A couple of writing exercises to try.
Exercise 1: Showing Character Through Their Eyes
Write in the first person perspective. Your character walks into a bar. What does he/she notice?
You can show what your character is like through the things they see and notice. The exercise helps to capture the detail and gives an indicator of what kind of person they are.
Exercise 2: Hidden Fury
2 people are sitting at a table. A is furious with B but not telling them. Write a short dialogue between them in the 1st person point of view of A.
Hope the exercises were useful. Thanks to Maureen for setting them for her MA in Writing students!
