Writing Weekend #3


So much can be said about a person by their hands. Calluses means he or she works with their hands. A ring can mean that the person is married depending on which finger it is worn on. The color of the skin can be an indicator of ethnicity.

Your assignment, if you haven’t already guessed it, is to describe your character’s hands. Don’t describe the person in any way. Use their hands as a way to discover him or her. Are their hands soft or callused? Do they have dirt under they’re nails or are they manicured? Is their skin soft and smooth or rough and dry? What jewelry are they wearing? Are they big or small?

If you take this challenge, link back to my blog and post a comment telling me you did it. I’m looking forward to reading it. Happy writing!
