A Lesson by The Pain Stays Fresh

Some tips for bringing your characters to life.

Ok. Come up three characters. Be creative. Give them a name. A background. What kind of being are they (they don't have to be human, you know)? How old are they? What do they look like? 

Take your newly created characters and put them together in a story. Write for about twenty minutes. Have fun!
