Hey guys, I'm very new to writing, so all advice is greatly appreciated. At the moment I'm practicing the art of writing paragraphs that show the character quite well. My first attempt was to create a female stripper, and I'd like to know firstly how you picture her. 'Candace stepped into the darkened room and waited until her eyes adjusted to the light. She ran her fingers along the wall. The paintwork had peeled and faded from a lifetime of neglect.' 'Candace returned the embrace, forcing a smile. Her right cheek twitched from being pulled into an unnatural position.' 'Smoke clouds that had once sent her into coughing fits, now felt reassuring in an odd sense.' Thanks guys!
