I want to open a book in which my main character does not talk and does not even know what language is, I have no idea where to start. I know how to introduce her to language, but I don’t know how to portray her without language.

I don’t have an answer, I’m just seconding this question. I’m coming up on a whole chapter where my character is alone! Considering reading Old Man and the Sea just to get some ideas, so if anyone has an answer, please share it quickly to spare me more Hemmingway 😛
