How does an actor make someone else’s words sound natural coming out of their mouth? They study how people talk. We’ll use an actor’s perspective to explore how and why people speak the way they do: physical traits, regional traditions, personality characteristics, educational background, and more. Then we’ll do an exercise to help you discover words, phrases, and descriptors to start a character key that you can refer to while you’re writing—a cheat sheet to help you keep the dialogue differentiated and true to each different personality in your story. Appropriate for any genre with characters or dialogue.
