My last post touched upon the idea of, “taking care of yourself”. I felt like it deserved a little more elaboration.
Taking care of yourself means to have a character, emotion and point of view, it doesn’t mean to plan a scene. The great thing about characters, emotions and points of view is that they are transferable, no matter what the scene situation and location you will need a character, emotion and point of view.
A character gives the scene texture, point of view gives you scene a why and emotion gives your scene depth. By starting with these 3 things, you are able to listen to your scene partner and mostly, you are able to respond based on your characters, emotion and point of view.
