Tuesday Tips - Assume a False Identity

Sometimes when you are writing you have to create a character that is very different from you or anyone you know.  Think of all the murder mysteries, vampire, and zombie books written by very nice people.  Children's book authors create talking animals and science fiction writers come with creatures no one has ever imagined before.
At Halloween we dress up in costumes and pretend to be someone or something else. Try to do that with your writing. Here's an idea to get you started.
Write about a visit to the veterinarian from the point of view of an animal.

What kind of animal are you?

What do you look like?

What’s wrong with you?

Do you like the doctor?

What about those strangers and all those smells?

Are you frightened?
Are you angry or relieved to going to the doctor?
