What I was doing was…

A month and a day into imagining the world of my screenplay story, I did another little 15 minute chunk before going to do the work that pays the bills. In my inky scribble I explored 8 questions about my main character in a stream of consciousness style. It helped to accept that this is just another day of showing up, doing some stuff and taking what is useful from what arises and not having any higher expectations than that -which is as good a mindset I can take when it comes to any creative practice. I don’t feel like I’m really getting anywhere (but probably am) but of the 8 answers I wrote one turned up a little nugget of interest -like panning for gold I suppose. Next time I’m going to look at character arc, which should be a good test to see if all this background writing has helped my understanding enough to be able to have a stab at what that is!
