Being specific as you explore the text means that you will miss no clues, transitions, or subtext. Being specific with your homework means that you can create powerful, motivating backstories, circumstances and imagery every time. Being specific in your emotional preparation means you can access the character’s emotional life quickly and accurately. Being specific in your scene means that you will look, listen and respond to every moment, that you will be alive in the present! General ideas are the enemy unless they are turned into specific choices utilizing the tools of the craft. There is no magic without specificity!
