Birth of a Character

Interesting characters add depth and complexity to your writing. This prompt involves paying attention to the world around you. Go to the mall, a park, or the grocery store and take time to people watch. Choose someone you think interesting and ask yourself why you think they are interesting. What makes them stand out from others? Then write a short character description along with a bio. Doing this on a regular basis will provide you with a storehouse of characters to choose from.
