Time to write some character descriptions

I’m on my third draft, and I’m worrying about this now. Truthfully, I was terrified of writing character descriptions for quite some time. Every time I tried I just felt awkward. I couldn’t care less about a characters hair colour, eye colour or body type – but then again, how else could I describe them? I looked up different descriptions from various types of books and compiled them to get a better overview. Physical attributes, personality traits, metaphors. There are so many ways to describing a character. So, I did a bit of research, and I present my result in this video.

Also, Niles is making an appearance, being his usual, spoiled self.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi, Arnella! I enjoyed your video and discussion about the various types of character description. This past week I have posted two blogs about characters focusing on description of appearance, as well as the art of naming a character. I think you would definitely enjoy, so please feel free to check them out! And good luck on your draft!
