Character Scenes

When I'm trying to get inside a character's head, I sometimes write a scene where they are alone, doing what they typically do when no one's watching (because it's said--appropriately, I believe--that "character is what you do when no one is looking").

These "character scenes" give me a little more insight into the characters who drive my stories, without revealing too much about the story itself.

Since they don't figure in to the novel directly at this moment, I'm going to pop one or two up here so you see what I see. ;-) If you write, you might try a similar exercise with your characters...

Have a terrific day!
