This exercise helps you to see people afresh.
If you were to describe yourself as a type of weather, what would you be? A moody storm or a light-hearted mix of sun and wispy cloud? Are you a tornado, a gale or a breeze? Drizzle or downpour?
What colour would you be? What animal? What hairstyle? What car? What music? What building? What time of day are you?
Jot down some ideas, with your own name as the poem’s title.
Now look at this image of a Victorian hero.
