How does the item look?
The leaf can look in many different ways. It is sometimes brown, but sometimes it is also full of colors; read, green, yellow and orange. Some leafs are looking sloppy, as if they just drowned in the rain. Other leafs look dry and hard – there is nothing in-between. They are full of ribs, looking like veins. The leafs edges are uneven. they can sometimes be broken. There is a stem beneath its body, and often there is something at the leaf that does not belong there, looking like some kind of rash. Some leafs are plain, they look dead, and other leafs are formed in different ways and look as if they would be chasing someone.
Discussion: How does your characters look in the stories you write? Are the all look-a-like or is there some difference? What does these characters represent in your stories? Are they all sloppy, or all looking as outsiders, or all looking as if they would be cut out of a fashion magazine? How do your characters look – dress, body language, shoes (my mother always told me that it does not matter how you dress if your shoes don´t match the rest of you), how do they behave when eating, do they have any lines or birthmarks in their faces? From where did you get these ideas? How would you do to make the difference between your characters look even greater?
