Write Over the Hump: Character Revelations

Random events that happen can often be used to reveal character in our writing. Whether our characters are happy about it, sad, angry or indifferent, their response to these events lets the reader understand them a little better. (And if we’re writing about ourselves, exploring our feelings helps us understand ourselves that much more.)

Write Over the Hump

You have just inherited a lamp from your favorite relative. Decide whether you like or hate it. Now write about that lamp and what it means to you for 10 minutes.


How did you, or your character, react to this odd inheritance?
