**There is one technique that you all might be familiar with as far as learning more about your character's dynamics: We would love for you to write your character into a scene that has nothing to do with his/her current story. An example is to put your fantasy character into a gas station mini market that is being robbed or your romance/comedy character into a scary haunted house scene . This Takes out all the elements of the original story that might be adding to your character and allows you to build up and strengthen them to be as real as you and me. Try this technique before the meetup and bring your thoughts on the process to share.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me
