Tip: Use all five senses in writing. If we walk past a bakery, let us know how it smells. Her perfume? Have him take a deep breath. How does the wind in the trees sound? How does his clammy shirt feel on a hot day? Give us details that put us there with the characters.

Thought: “There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either IN or you’re OUT. There’s no such thing as life in-between.” – Pat Riley

Teaser: Your character is a secret agent with many aliases. Select five names to represent his or her different personalities and describe how the character dresses or changes his/her appearance, job and background information to become each persona.
