think it's a fun exercise.... If your character had to be
represented through a series of objects, what would they be?
These photos by Fichard are fun examples of the exercise -
a person represented by things.
This is my record player. It works with batteries. Actually,
it belongs to my little brother Lionel. I left him a note. Do
you like music?.. This is my favorite record album. My
godmother gave it to me for my birthday. She lives in France.
These are my books. I like stories with magic powers in them.
either in kingdoms on earth or on foreign planets. Also, time
travel, if they make it realistic. Usually, I prefer a girl hero,
but not always. I couldn't bring all of them because it got too
heavy. You can borrow any you want. I also brought my
lefty scissors because I'm left-handed, my toothbrush, some
rubber bands, extra batteries, and my binoculars, as you know.
I forgot my comb.
That's it? No mess kit? no flashlight? No canteen?
