Dee Review “Jayne Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë
Coffee break 11.0.am to 11.15.am
John gave us an exercise on protagonists and antagonists:
List as many traits as possible. Followed by a discussion on creating characters
Rich story Toby the Roadie
Rich would like to thank members for the excellent feedback.
Homework: Using a list containing about half a dozen protagonists / antagonists character traits, start to develop a story that portrays them,without actually stating them.
