Snowman Character Study

Write in a New Place

By Michelle Lynn Senters-

Great writers study their character carefully.  They determine the character’s personality, likes and dislikes, quirks, and mannerisms.  They give their character room to grow and even allow them to fail occasionally.  Look at the pictures of our main character and ask yourself some questions.

If this snowman was the main character of your story, what is he like? What is his (or her) name? How does he feel? What are his hopes, dreams, and fears? What would his New Year’s resolution be? Who are his friends and enemies? How does his character change (physically and emotionally) throughout your story? What was his greatest adventure in life? Will your character die a sorrowful death or will the story end with the hope for next year’s winter?

  1. Cute little guy! 😀 I like this story starter! Such a cool (get it?) idea! Although I think based on the pictures the little guy isn’t going to live happily ever after. 😉

  2. What a cute little snowkid. I love the sequence of photos, but the poor snowkid seems to be losing his–or her–strength. I imagine soon he will be leaving your home for a while. Great idea for a character study.
