Anonymous added: The most useful advice I ever received about influenced characters came from my high school drama teacher. Drunk people don’t “play” drunk, they “play” sober—though they are not. Performing usual tasks, they still seek an expected result, only with a wrench thrown in. Instead of drawing arrows to the obstacle, demonstrate that it is now there outside of the character’s control. That idea of playing the same goal rather than the obstacle helped my storytelling grow up. It’s a fond memory.
