{discover.play.build.} "hands" list

I was reading b.’s blog, Live…Write…Teach…, and was reminded of making a hand list. I first saw this strategy in Penny Kittle & Don Grave’s Inside Writing. I’m glad b. reminded us of it. Read her post and then make your own (or one for a character, which is what I did).

What do your character’s hands touch?


  1. Nice, Ruth!!!! Love it :).
    What is Sophia's favorite song? And, what does that say about who she is?
    Thanks for the mention above! I'm glad the idea roused a memory and furthered your character study…

  2. It is interesting to think about all that the hand can tell about the character. As always, thanks for sharing a glimpse into your notebook!
