EXERCISE: Holding an image

Begin by drawing or doodling any image, an image of a character doing something. Or clip something from a magazine. Allow this image to include some clear action; make sure someone is doing something, even over-the-top if you like, to come to your head. Use action verbs. See the list below for inspiration. Don’t worry too much about character creation- we’ll get into that next chapter.

You can pull from the list of actions below to get you started, or invent your own:
-Cooking stew
-Defending against martians
-Befriending martians
-Cleaning car
-Running an end zone pattern

Continue to hold this image in your mind. Remember it now and then. We'll bring this back later.
