Writing Exercise #15: Character Hooks

Filed under: Writing Exercises — Tags: , , — ax20 @ 2:39 pm

This is more of an exercise to help you with something you are already writing. I posted a link about a way to help differentiate characters when you have a lot of them. That article talked about creating hooks for your character, a small detail or trait that makes them memorable.

Your assignment is to write a list of twenty-five traits. Some should be looks based, others should be about personality, while others can be about their status or any other element you can think of. It’s no fun to come up with in the first place, but you will be happy to have it in the future.
