I find character descriptions one of the most difficult things to write well. I struggle with it every time. I’m not even sure why, but I’m just not good at describing people. Maybe it’s because I am very shy? Part of it I think is the eyes, and that deserves a section of it’s own because creative descriptions get awkward fast. I’ll post a character description that I wrote below. You don’t need to know the story to read it.
“Cloud looked up, eyes sunken back into his skull, large and terrified, as if he was focused on some unspeakable horror looming in the background, and Zack noticed for the first time how haggard he appeared. Pale skin stretched taut over hollowed cheeks, a mess of blonde hair matted down to his scalp with dirt and grease, and knobby joints where the fat had melted away. A man abused and forgotten by the same world he tried to save.”
I may post more of these. I’ve been writing for five years, so I’m sure the ones I did several years ago are awkward as hell XD
