Characterization


Open up one of your high school yearbooks. Pick someone you knew slightly and write a story of what happened to him or her after graduation.

You might begin by making up the answers to the following questions about this person:

  • Age

  • Birthplace

  • Marital Status

  • Children, if any, and their ages

  • General Appearance

  • Living Arrangements (with whom, where, in what type of place)

  • Occupation

  • Degree of skill at occupation (beginner, expert, experienced but a bumbler, etc)

  • Character's feelings about his occupation

  • Family Background (ethnicity, siblings' and parents' names, social status, political affiliation, mental status, educational background, religion, habits, pet peeves, etc.)


  • HAVE FUN!
