Character Build Up

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’m reading Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On at the moment. I’ve seen a lot of fan art for two of the characters, Simon and Baz. Simon is the main character so the story is mostly from his perspective. Baz, however, is a huge focus of the story. Simon spends a good deal of the beginning of the book thinking about and searching for Baz before he is actually introduced into real-time events in the book. I think that it is the most build up I’ve read for a character before he’s actually shown up in the story in a long time. Write a scene that puts a large focus on a character that is never actually introduced into the scene. Only reference this character by memory or reputation.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
