“Write a description of the character as seen by another character in the story.” -- Damon Knight in Creating Short Fiction.I tried this with the story I’m working on. It helped clarify the characters for me, but I’m still fuzzy on one of them. Part of the problem is that I’ve been busy with other tasks and haven’t spent as much time with this story as it needs. Today, I’m going to pick a topic randomly from the dictionary and have the four characters write about it.
