I struggle when it comes to the physical description of characters. Or maybe I struggle with the idea of feeling it's needed. I am more likely to describe the look on a character's face than his/her actual face. I just don't see a need for it while I'm writing. I can go back and add it in, but I just never seem to find a natural place for this sort of thing while I'm doing the actual writing of something. And even then, I don't ever seem to know when it's really needed and when it's not. This drives me a little crazy. How do you decide if a character's physical description is necessary for a story? I don't think it's always needed, but I don't really trust myself to recognize when it would strengthen the writing and the story. I would love to hear from you guys on this. Does it really matter what a character looks like?
