Hi there, I've been working on a novel for about a year and a half and am in a research and rewrite phase with my characters. Its all evolving organically and methodically. How would you guys say one can write a protagonist which is introverted, always thinking about something and is generally an island onto him/her self (due to a lack of identification with others in his outside world)? The tendency is either to write as a 3rd person, or all through the thoughts / eyes of the character. Alot of the 'show not tell' type advice I read suggests steering clear from having a character describe a situation or place and rather letting dialogue bring it all out. But that doesn't quite seem to work with this character, any ideas on how to approach this from a writing style viewpoint without getting cheesy?
