Describing injured characters
If you look closely at the illustration above, you will see just a few drops of blood on the snow. The character in the cave is badly injured.
Humans, animals, mythical characters, indeed any sort of character might become injured inside of a story. Characters have conflicts, fights, wars and accidents.
What description do you give, though? How much blood is too much? This is important to think on.
Furthermore, it is helpful to visit the mind of your injured character to fully feel everything that happens to him. Injuries bring about emotions such as fear, sadness, confusion and anger. Injured characters don’t always survive! These feelings are an important part of the description.
