mirror-on-wall-1156610-mThere’s an old technique sometimes seen in fiction where a character looks into a mirror in order to describe his or her appearance to the reader. While this practice isn’t one I’d recommend, I do think mirrors can be used in more interesting ways.

When we look into a mirror, what we see is usually different from what’s really present. A lot of factors color how we view our reflections: current mental and physical health, feelings of self-worth, and the opinions stated by others.┬áPick one of your primary characters and explore what that person really sees when he or she looks in the mirror. Is the view positive or negative — and why?
