Introspection is a powerful tool.
It’s nothing more than discovering the secrets within the scenes of your story.
Pick a memory and freeze frame it.
Walk around it and through it in your mind.
No judgement, just an open minded walk through of “what ifs” and “how comes”
It doesn’t need direction, it just needs inspection.
Think about The Who’s, what’s, when’s, where’s and HOW’S of those scenes.
Questions will arise and answers will follow.
Of course not all answers are the right answers so revisit your story often and re-examine those scenes.
Even if you’ve done it fourteen hundred times already.
There will come a moment when the answer will strike your soul and that spark will hopefully heal you.
