The protagonist appeared in the doorway, dressed in a magnificent golden helm and with cerulean eyes shining fiercely. If something about that sounds a little cheesy to you, then you’ll be happy to hear that we’re spending this episode talking about character descriptions. Joined again by special guest David, we discuss how much description is too much, too little, and just right. We look at the pros and cons of waiting to describe aspects of a character, and what happens when you focus on one aspect to the exclusion of others. Plus Oren feels silly that he doesn’t know what cerulean is.
