Have you ever glanced at someone in an ordinary situation and wondered what they were thinking? I have, but that's just me. I look at everyone as a character for a future book. I even can get a little imaginary dialogue going on!
For our writing activity today, I want you to picture a suntanned thirty-something man standing at the front of a very long line. You watch as he glances over his shoulder, but you can't see his eyes because they're hidden behind his sunglasses. You think you see a smile tug at the corner of his mouth but you're not sure because he seems to be sucking on a mint or piece of candy.
Knowing that this man is first in a horribly long line, what do you think is going through his mind as he surveys the crowd behind him?
