I'm writing a novel, and I just realized I don't describe be main character's appearance until Chapter 3 (each chapter is 1500~2000 words long and there are 25 chapters in total).
I do mention that the MC is 'skinny' in Chapter 1. Is that enough for the reader until he/she reaches Chapter 3?
Other information that I mention in Chapter 1 and 2:
- The character's gender.
- The character's age (just entered college).
- The character's ethnicity.
- The character's nationality.
The reason I didn't describe the character earlier, is that I didn't want the description to sound forced. Still, I wonder if I should try to move it to the beginning? To prevent the reader from forming a false physical image of the MC?
The character's age (just entered college).==
between 18 and 80. Tons of information.
