Character Sketching

Chatting to some of the other members at the meeting last night we briefly touched upon physical descriptions of charaters and how some of us had not spent much time fleshing these out in our current projects.

By happy coincidence here is a list of good examples of character descriptions from popular novels, each taking a different approach to the problem (courtesy of the folks at i09.)

I have to say I like Rowling's example "and his feet in their leather boots were like baby dolphins."
Maybe I should get round to reading that Potter book after all.

In any case hope the above might be of use and gives you some ideas.
Have a great weekend all!
