I’m currently reading The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett (an excellent book by the way). One character carries a talisman. How the character behaves and feels about himself as a result of that object is quite interesting.
In one of my WIP’s, a fairly major character wears headphones constantly. They become an extension of his person. Cary Bradshaw’s shoes could also be thought of in the same way.
So for today’s prompt, what object (if any) is a reflection of your character’s personality? How does your character relate to that thing? Have you given your object enough weight in the story–does it reoccur in every scene your character is in, show up in times of emotional stress, become something other characters notice and possibly comment on or tease your character about? Think about things like why your character chose this object, whether it interferes with the character’s ability to do tasks, and (possibly the most important) why your character needs this object in the first place.
