Observe, or have a character observe, a person doing some small action. Maybe you are a child watching your father fix a broken radio, or maybe you’re waiting to have your hair cut and watching the hairdresser work on the customer ahead of you. Write a detailed description of the actions of the person at work. Notice each thing their hands do. Try to reconstruct it in the fullest possible detail. Fill in the background as well with subtle clues about where the activity is taking place.
