The thing that I want you to think about is is just the answer to a question :
What’s in your character’s pocket?
- So is there a thing that they carry with them all the time?
- Is there something that they have put in their pocket specifically just in that moment?
- Do they not carry anything in their pocket? How can they get away with that?
What’s in their pocket?
