This is what happens when friends try to help me get into my character’s mindsets:
Envisioning a scene where your characters are talking … and the Kool-aid guy busts through the wall and yells, “OH YEAH !!!” ……. and then everybody reacts the way they would react .. based on who they are ….
Alex: *grows tree trunks around Mr. Kool-aid, holding him in place*
Emma: I’m getting a cup.
Kerry: Bring me one too?
Emma: Are your legs broke?
Kerry: No, and no, I don’t want them to be, so yes, I’ll get my own damn cup.
Heather: WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? MR. KOOL-AID JUST BURST THROUGH THE FUCKING WALL, AND YOU’RE GETTING CUPS?!
Emma: ….What? We’re thirsty….it’s kool-aid….
