Happy Sunday!

Les dejo mi retrato para que usted tendrá mi presencia todos los días y las noches que estoy lejos de ti. (I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.)” ~Frida Kahlo

One thing fundamentally missing from most characters in plays I’m seeing and reading, nowadays, is inner life. I’m not sure one can specifically write a character’s inner life, perhaps unless you’re penning a dream play, but if you think about your characters’ inner lives, it will accrue.


Your character, as do we all, has thought at least once about the impression she or he believes, hopes, or fears is left in their absence. What fundamental qualities does she or he bring with and leave behind in the minds of others?

You’re welcome. Happy writing!
