3E: Navel Gazing and Other Worthy Pursuits: A Character-Building Game FULL
Limited Capacity full

How do others see us (and our characters), and how do we see ourselves? How can we dredge up very precise details from our lives to make our characters feel compelling and real? Fiction and nonfiction writers alike will enjoy this practical, game-centered session-- using a game called Intersectional Bingo!-- to help us delve into our personal histories, secrets, and experiences to bring depth and detail to our characters. You'll write internal and external personal descriptions, compare notes, and discover a more specific variety of experiences to use in your writing. You'll leave the session with tools to enrich your current or future writing projects, and perhaps a better understanding of yourself as well.
