Use some or all of your sensate memories in a story draft with the despicable character as the narrator, the point of view.  How do your sensate memories create movement?  How do you construct narrative based on those memories? 

How do you create character?  Let's talk about a "recipe" for creating characters in fiction.  What elements do you need?

What is a cliché?  A phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought.  Why do you use them?  Why don't you use them?  Let's do an exercise:  write down as many clichés as you can, and then we'll regroup and take some of them and reinvent them together.

In-class writing exercise:  write a scene in which 2 characters are fighting over an object of your choice.  Begin with the first attempt of one character to take the object.
