I am trying to develop a character who has a very rigid world view but I want to use more than just a single adjective to bring out this character’s “quality”. I also do not want to inject any religious or political inclination that the character has adopted that the rigidity can be attributed as a source. Given this task, is there a sentence or two that you can suggest that conveys to the reader that this character is rigid without coming out and just saying so?
Note: I’m not asking for someone to write a sentence for my book. But I’ve hit a wall and the only thing I can do right now is walk away from my typewriter. We’ve all been there.
