I used to be really good with describing my characters' hair. It used to be the one feature I enjoyed writing about, its silkiness, texture, length etc, etc.
As writers, we’re told we have to use all six senses, right?
Well, HAIR was my thing - the Hero touching the Heroine's hair, waxing lyrical (internally, of course) about how lovely it was. I loved describing all of it and it really wasn't as corny as it sounds, I promise.
But lately I have to really think about it before I can conjure the words to describe my characters' hair. I recently re-read a few of my mss, and noted all my heroes had jet-black hair! In short, my hair mojo is gone, and I can't get it back! And my heroines are all getting decidedly "honey-blonde with hints of red".
Well, things need to change. I need my mojo back or else my next heroine will bald.
Hmm, interesting, my spidey senses are tingling. While I ruminate on this turn of events, perhaps you'd like to share what character features you like describing.
Happy reading and writing.
