What I was doing was…

More exploring of the world of my screenplay this rainy morning, in particular the essential qualities of the world my characters might live in. I wrote a bunch of interesting ‘what if’ ideas about rules that could effect the way characters act or experience reality. I exploded the qualities I described yesterday by asking myself one simple question: what is the most version of this? I felt playful and like I was allowed to see how far I could push the idea (e.g. a quality of this world is that it’s safe, the most safe would be if there were no consequences to danger, that you couldn’t die or be injured). It’s actually suggested some potential story ideas which I’m going to keep in mind as do some more character stuff next time.
