Character Development

The free verse found here is one of the first steps in preparing to write a novel in 30 days.  That is 1667 words a day for the month, or about 50,000 words.  I don’t expect the Great American Novel, just a creativity challenge – I just want this to be fun.

I have the sense that poets are painters with words while novelists are storytellers.  I do not consider myself a storyteller, so I am trying a different approach.  I hope to paint my characters with my free verse, then plop them down in a family saga and see where they go.
