This week’s writing prompt is an exercise:

Introduce a character solely by his actions. Don’t tell a word about him.Introduce a character solely by his ambiguous actions.

Next week Ask three readers to tell you what they think of him – the more variation the better.

Or Introduce a location solely by describing it. Don’t tell us what it’s like – just describe it. Is it scary, barren, imposing? Evoke the mood with the description.
