I just found a quick solution to a problem that's been niggling at me for weeks.
Every time I sit down to visualize a scene, I can see the place my scene is set, hear it, smell it. But my character's faces tended to be fuzzy. Or worse, they'd be subsumed by faces of friends.
Thankfully, Nordstrom sent me a catalogue the other day. As I was flipping through it I realized, aha! That's Lucy. That's Nicole. And that's Alda.
Now I've got those pictures, and a few more I found in other magazines, pinned to my board, it's a snap to focus my brain and picture my characters as they speak.
I just finished act one! Yay me.
I've been working on my screenplay 5 or 6 hours a day. Am I a slacker no more?
It's Screener Time! "The Post."
