Writing 101, Day Six: A Character-Building Experience


Today, you’ll write about the most interesting person you’ve met in 2014. In your twist, develop and shape your portrait further in a character study.


He liked to sit across the room for us, watching us. He had dark, dead looking eyes. The longer you know him you learn to understand the little things. Twirling his finger in the ends of his hair, is the first thing any of us noticed about him, because he’s not really a talker. Maybe he had trouble expressing himself, or maybe he was just fed up with talking on deaf ears. It was hard for me to identify with him. He didn’t like to better himself and i couldn’t stop trying.

He was tall, 6’1”. He was weirdly athletic, but didn’t play sports. He was strangely petty and strangely caring…i say strangely because it’s hard to gage him. Hard to read what his intentions are. It’s hard to gage when he was being honest or just jerking a chain he knew how to jerk.

He’s one of the few people who cried and i felt like his face wasn’t made for it. He’s the kind of person who should never cry, but cries too much. his hands are really big, and tactile. He’s excellent at fine motor skill related things. He also moved involuntarily instead of standing still. I don’t think he knows he does it.

I feel sick
