Describing people what do you prefer...?
When describing characters I fall into three categories, which do you prefer or does it matter or would you use all three?
The generalizing description: The popular boy flaunted his perfect complexion and matching wardrobe, and spoke in a mocking tone.
Small details added in: The tall brown haired boy was as popular as the expensive clothes he wore, tones of high-society played in his mocking voice.
Then really detailed: The wavy brown haired boy looked down on any student not wearing the latest fashion trend. Trends he normally set, his popularity made him practically royalty. His pompous attitude cut to the bone with his educated vocabulary.
When I introduce a character I typically go into one of these templates. I normally don’t reflect on witch one that would have worked best until my second rewrite. I was just wondering what one (if any) you found best, or related best to you?
Thx for reading and any comment you might leave…
