What I Did Was…

Working on a screenplay for a film I want to make, trying to distill the idea and my main character’s want into one word. Wrote a couple of pages and arrived at a word I did not expect. This was a helpful exercise I took from a book by L.A. Writer’s Lab , to which I additionally asked ‘why?’ until I ultimately got to ‘because that’s the way humans evolved’. Feel surprised at the outcome and wondering if it’ll stick. Gonna hold it lightly and continue on with some character and world building exercises.
