Many of you have probably kept a diary at some point in your lives? It’s something I have done on and off through the years.
They are definitely a window into what a person is like.
Using a character in your current work in progress, keep a diary from the point of view of your character. Do this for at least three days and maximum of five days.
How would they be reacting to current events? The race for Prime Minister, climate change? Love Island?
If you’ve not got a current WIP, choose an existing fictional character. I wonder how Elizabeth Bennett or Mr Collins would react to what is currently going on.
I have done this for my main character and have found it a very interesting and worthwhile exercise.
Let me know in the comments how you get on with it?
