I’m on my way to Hawaii for a few days and won’t be able to check in very often. In the meantime, I do hope you will take me up on my challenge. Here are the details:
Pick an age between 55 and 70 and in 250 words or less create a character for a novel or short story, and I want details about them - not just physical details either. Give me a character who stands on their own physically, emotionally, mentally and intellectually and one who defies stereotypes of age.
Put your descriptions in the comments section of this post or the previous one, but think carefully before you post. Stereotypes of any type should be avoided.
As of this post, there are 2 good entries from Ello and Church Lady.
The person who develops the most realistic, least stereotypical character will receive a $20 Amazon.com gift certificate to be awarded on November 6th when I return from Hawaii.
Aloha and Pomaika`i!
