I'm not much of an actress, but sometimes I do throw myself into my scenes practically acting them out.

That is certaibly something to try. I am sure the character will ring much more true if you ask yourself these questions and think like him/her.

Karen Lange said...

Yes, I have, and I seem to be doing it a lot more lately...

Have a good weekend!
Blessings,
Karen

Hi Wendy -

I see scenes as a movie. Also, I try to think what reaction/action I'd have in situations.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Nancy -

I thought these questions would give everyone something to use as a jumping off point.

Blessings,

Hi Karen -

Yes, our project seems to require a lot of, "what would they do," questions.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Well...yes. Since I write mostly first person, I do often put myself in my skin! At times, I wish I could jump out of it for awhile...

Hi Jen -

LOL! I guess this article doesn't apply to non-fiction writers. I've wanted to jump out of my skin on more than one occasion.

Blessings,
Susan :)
