M3: Part Two

Day 2: Ready?

Copy your end result from yesterday and paste it at the top of your comment. That's your starting point.

Step #1: give each character one to two lines describing their background--home life, relationships, hygiene, etc...

Step #2: dress your characters in their favorite outfit.

Step #3: label each character with an age.

That's it for today. Simple... See ya tomorrow. :)

  3. Enter characters:

    Henry Ewing; age 60, the librarian, absented minded, sisters Myra, and Helen, much married, and divorced; he always liked the books a little bit more than his wives. The only person genuinely likes is his niece, Laura, the family lush, who likes books almost as much as he does. You’ll see him in his standard rumpled corduroys and jacket walking to work every morning, rain or shine.

    Helen Ewing Hilton, age 55, currently residing in St. Cloud, Florida, has tanned leathery skin, wears blue eye shadow and too much lipstick. She has little use for either of her children, both of whom are a disappointment to her. She likes designer outfits but can’t affords them so wears less expensive knock-offs.

    Seth Hilton, age 31, Chief of Police. His ex-wife Cindy, and their three children live in Bristol in the house he built. He lives in a rental on Rt 32 in Bremen. He has as much use for his mother as she has for. Is usually in his uniform.

    Laura Hilton, age 28, Seth’s sister, currently residing on the third floor of Henry’s Glidden Street Victorian. She was very wild for most of her life and has no use for either of her parents and while she had always gotten along well with Seth in the past she realized it was only because she was useful to him. She’s most comfortable in jeans, t-shirt, and bear feet.

    Barbara Ewing Parker, age 51, married at sixteen, pregnant at seventeen and on her way to Hollywood before she turned twenty. She made a few movies, met someone rich, was given a surprisingly favorable divorce settlement, which allows her to live very comfortably, but not in Hollywood. She favors jeans and oxfords, paired with cotton blouses or cashmere sweaters, and pearls.

    Walter Benner, age 35, Mrs. Parker’s only son. Walter has problems. A diagnosed schizophrenic, not only does he hear voices, but sometimes he sees them, too. However, he’s a lot smarter than people think he is. Jeans, band t-shirts, vans.

    Marion Ewing Gifford, age 48, the youngest Ewing sibling, married Ted out of High School, no children. She’s your basic bitch, quite attractive and knows it. She will flirt with just about anyone but never puts out. She loved Ted once, but not for very long. She likes skirts and dresses to show off her legs, high heels, and low cut blouses and sweaters.

    Ted Gifford, age 50, owns Gifford Insurance as well as a number of investment properties. Both he and Marion live well and go to Sanibel every winter for two months. He pretty much does whatever Marion says, except when it comes to business. Definitely a suit man.
