Brainstorming Characters

Step into Character

Step into the character and experience the world as he does. What can you smell, seeing, tasting, hear?

Rummage through his pockets. An old piece of string? A penknife? A snotty handkerchief?

Feel the cloth of his clothes. Is it fine or rough? Bought on the high street or in Savile Row?

Look at the photographs on the mantelpiece. Photos of a marriage or a friend or the Nepalese mountains?  What nicknames and keepsakes does he have on his desk?

Where does he hide his addictions? Cigarettes, drink? In the cupboard, behind a copy of Charles Dicken’s Bleak House?
