Random Side Characters

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

One of the webcomic artists that I follow has a KickStarter going to turn her series 4-Panel Life into a book. She has a wonderful sense of humor in most cases. Even the KickStarter video for her book made me chuckle a few times. When she draws other people in her 4-Panel comics she often does a nondescript bubble person with the label pal on it. In comic book form this is pretty funny but it isn’t something we aspire to in our writing. Write a scene where you make sure that every character is given some kind of specific descriptor. What keeps your secondary characters from being “Pal” characters?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
