Practical Prompt 9-2-21

It’s important that the different POV characters in your story all read as different people. To practice making your character’s distinct, take a sentence or paragraph from your story that describes one character’s action, paying careful attention to your word choice and sentence structure. Now, write another character performing the same action. How would this character do and think differently than the first character? Did you find yourself using different words to describe the action? Were your sentences shorter or longer for the second character? These small changes add up to create a unique voice.
