Actors have a big bag of tricks for creating a believable character, many of which may be useful to the writer of fiction or memoir. Thinking like an actor can help you create characters that leap from the page. Show up with anything from the vaguest sketch to a fleshed-out character whose mind you still haven’t cracked and leave with a character ready to move your story forward. We’ll look at tools for describing ourselves and the people we know, as well as for generating the people who populate our fiction.
Suzanne Morrison is the author of Yoga Bitch: One Woman’s Quest to Conquer Skepticism, Cynicism and Cigarettes on the Path to Enlightenment, a memoir based on a long-running one-woman show of the same title.
