Time:  30-45 Minutes

Action Step #1 – Write a description of your hero and heroine for a story you’re currently working on.  Include both a physical description as well as a description of their personality.  Do they have any habits?  What are their likes and dislikes?  What do they want for their future?  Why do they want it? Take it deeper and write about why they behave the way they behave – how is their behavior/personality linked to their past experiences?

If you’re not yet working on a story, create a character, male or female it doesn’t matter.

Action Step #2 – Imagine your character(s) have just been in a car accident.  How do they react?  Write it down.  Make it consistent with their personality and character description you’ve just completed.
