Self Portrait : Writers should learn to use all their senses. Be more visual. Use your eyes to see past what you’re used to. What you’ll find might surprise you. In this image I see myself multiple times, differently. It’s an interesting way to explore or develop other personalities or characteristics. I do the same with the characters I create for my books. What is this? And where am I? What do you see when you look at me? Even if you’re not sure, make something up! You can always go back and change it at any time.
