We are many different people.
At any given time we might be walking around as an employee at a job that we hate/love.
The next moment we might get a troubling phone call about our child, and then we put on our parenting hat.
Or maybe it could be a message from a spouse, telling us that he/she just got promoted/was in a car accident/got good news from the doctor.
We could be an exercise nut on weekends or avoid exercise at all costs.
We might be a meat lover or a vegetarian or maybe a little of both.
We might love to play board/card games or hate any type of game.
We could be a reader of books/newspapers/magazines or only watch television.
We might be addicted to our devices, spending hours reading postings, or we might not own a single portable device, including a cell phone.
Because we change from day to day, hour to hour, we must consider that our characters also change. If she doesn’t, then she won’t be interesting to follow. A flat character does not invite tension, and every good story needs tension to pull the reader along.
Your task is to either create a new character or pull up one that you think might benefit from a little expansion.
Make a list of all the different disguises this character wears. Narrow the list down to two or three that you could comfortably fit into a scene.
Write that scene, keeping in mind that with each step a character makes, the hat changes.
Have fun with this one.
