One Line Character Description

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’m reading Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman right now. I’ve got to admit that this is the first time that I’ve been disappointed with the book version with any book/movie cross over. I’ve loved the movie Practical Magic for as long as I can remember. But the characters feel like completely different people in the book from those that I grew to love in the movie. It’s almost as if they took the character name and one line of description for each of the book characters and went from there to form the characters in the movie. One line of description isn’t enough to give the true feel of the character in my opinion. Today take on that challenge. Try to give one line of description to describe a character. From that one line try building a new character how different is the new character from the original. This would be a great exercise to do with a writing partner if you can find one. Give one line of character description to your partner and vice versa then see what each of you comes up with when expanding on that description. If you’d like to try working with someone else but don’t have a partner to work with leave your one line description in a comment. I will give my imagining of the character from it. (If anyone does leave one liners in the comments and they speak to you try using one of those too.)

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
