Everything that doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. And later on you can use it in some story.
Okay final workshop ideas for you.
Think bout someone you know and write about them in detail! As in the quality of their clothing, their vocal tones (timbre of voice), what they say and what they actually mean. How they move and how they sit, their body language etc. If you feel brave send it to them and see what they think! This will help you build character profiles. Giving you an insight into how your character behaves so when you write about them you really know how they are going to react. It will also help further interaction with the rest of the characters in your book.
Now I am going to practice what I preach and start doing some of this. I really need to get inside my characters heads!
