Homework is optional on the course although it would be great if everyone could bring a 100 word (approx) description of a character to the first session.

Here’s an example of the sort of thing you might bring along. I searched in Google Images for ‘Lady in a Cafe’ and used the picture for inspiration.

Woman Sat at Cafe Table by Andy Lloyd

She has a heart-shaped face, pale and flawless in its complexion, framed by a curtain of long dark hair, loosely gathered to one side. The eyebrows are arched and penciled in, maybe just a shade too heavy for her face. Her eyes are a light grey, and are staring fixedly at nothing, or maybe it’s simply the light she is looking at, the way it gleams on the dark oak counter. The woman is wearing a dress is of pale cream silk or satin and she has thigh-high velvet boots. She is easily the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. – MB
