As I mentioned in Monday’s vlog, I was in a play over the weekend. I’ve been in many over the years, but this production was my first role in a drama. I’ve always done comedy, so it was quite a stretch to be serious and show a range of emotion. It was a nice challenge and I enjoyed the experience, especially since I had the lead role.

So I ask: Would my character do this after this line? What can I do to convey this emotion? These types of questions are perfect examples of strengthening my writing through using a hobby.

What are your hobbies? How do you think they may enhance your writing? Are they part of your book's plot or a character's background, etc.?
Here's a glimpse of our set for the murder mystery thriller I performed in over the weekend.
