She’s flipping through pictures on her phone. I can’t help but look. It’s not only because I love a diversion. Let’s face it: it’s pure voyeurism. I’m nosy and I just can’t help it. I become even more intrigued when I realise that all the pictures of are one person… Oooh, a love interest! And look, there’s a blur in each of the pictures!
As my excitement bubbles and my pace quickens – a spring in my step – I think about my set; how every detail matters. A lone paper bag. A half empty glass of wine. A scarf strewn across a sofa…Everything is there for a reason. What effect do I want my set – and every object on it – to have on my audience? What do I want them to think? Are these objects clues? What do they say about my character’s past/present/future?
