The Hundred Word Challenge

Choose one of the images of the characters from the photos and write a characterisation using no more than 100 words. We want to know, not only what they look like, but clues about their personality.

Choose your words carefully, making sure every single word earns it’s place within the paragraph. Draw on your knowledge of creating an effect and ensure that the reader is able infer about your character. Use your sentence structures to add variety to your ideas.

Your homework is to write your own character description and then to write a comment on someone else’s 100 word challenge.
