Have you ever stopped and looked around yourself? Looked at the people around you?
I have! I do it all the time!
Matter of fact…I’m doing it right now.
Ah, the college life. Not only do we hate coming, but it also a place we come to study with friends. College, where you meet the weirdest people every term.
The fun part about watching people, is you get to see how they reacted to things. How they move. How they laugh. How they frown. How they walk…
Speaking of walking, I saw the most weirdest walk ever at school! Let me set the scene for you:
My friend, Carlos and I had just gotten to school. He was talking about…something he saw in the school bathroom when I saw her. She was walking to class. At first, I didn’t noticed her walk, until I looked back at her again. The heals of her feet never touched the ground, yet she made it seen like she did. Her walk remind me of a prancing horse, or a show horse.
See what I mean!? Fun, right?
You can make up stories on these people, give them backgrounds. It helps you when you need to have a background story for your characters. It a good way to have small character in your story, even if they have one line.
The fun part is, my friend Hubert watches couples kiss, which now I understand why. People kiss very weird. I cant judge him anymore after I started to watch couples too lol. Not only do I want they kiss, but I watch how they talk to each other, the fights they have out in the open and the way the guys watches his girlfriend.
Now I started to do this, because my writing teacher told me too. He would take the train and watch people, write about it later or right there. He said it was a good idea to built characters.
So homework for this week!
Watch people. Write about it.
