The Write Recipe : A.I.M.

Time to bring your characters and composition alive!

“Hello, I am Tom.”

Based on a name like “Tom”, do you know whether that person is a loyal friend or one who will betray you one day? How much do you know about a person when you first meet him?

If you are only meeting “Tom” in a story without being able to actually see him, he will become an even bigger mystery!

The question is: Why do we need to know more about “Tom”?


Good stories have characters that we can understand and relate to. Characters are central to a story as what they do and go through can trigger our emotions. These characters keep us reading to the end.

This is why writers need to let readers know more about the characters. With only a given name like “Tom” in the story, will you be able to understand “Tom” and be engaged in the story about him? We do not think so.


It is frustrating when you are groping in the dark, unsure of how to create well-developed and engaging characters that will bring your writing to a new level. We want you to have clarity and to ace your shot with A.I.M.

The activities help me to understand how to apply the technique and there are also lots of examples to build my vocabulary to describe characters well!”

Composition Writing Instructors | Lil' but Mighty

Mrs Chew and Ms Xie say hi!


  1. have characters who appeared abruptly

  2. have characters with abrupt or illogical details without proper build-up e.g. “Now I cannot fulfil my dream of going to Australia!” Tom cried as he watched the prize being presented to Xavier. (There was no mention of Tom’s dream in the story until the end!)

  3. contain irrelevant details and descriptions about the characters (usually being cancelled during marking)

  4. contain characters that lack depth

  5. are confined to the same plot as they always involve the same character
