Characterization Through Cumulative Sentences
- 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
- Ages 14+
Learn to craft sentences that describe the world of your character, then move into the mind and heart of the character.
By moving from mere description, to interpretation and metaphor, we see not only what our character sees, but how they see it. We understand the world they’re in, what they’ve made of it, and what it’s made of them.
Write these sentences before you know your character, as a way to find them, or write these sentences with your character already known to you, as a way to present them.
