Characters: their version of events
Grab an old magazine or a newspaper supplement, and flip through it to find pictures of people for your characters. Pick four - the protagonist, the person they stole from, and any two others you can think of. Tear them out and glue each one onto a double-spread in your notebook.
Next to each character's picture, write their version of events - the events you have so far, from yesterday, and anything you make up on the spur of the moment. Give yourself about 5 minutes for each character.
Tomorrow we'll play with Place. If you want to share what you invent, tweet me @WritersGreenHse. I'd love to hear.
