Acting Out Your Scenes

Sometimes when you are writing, the actions in the scene don’t sound right. Or an argument doesn’t sound natural. What do you do to check it?

A fun trick to try is acting out your scenes. Grab a friend and talk about the scene. If you want you can write it out like a script, and act out the scene like a play. Use props if you need. Get a feel for the scene as you are acting it out. If you really want to see it in action, video record it and play it back later.
