Write as much as you can about everything. I like to go into restaurants, cafes etc, and watch people. I jot down what I see, devise scenarios that I believe they are living. You notice quirks, those things that makes a person real, like the way they wipe their forehead, rub two fingers together, stroke their eyebrows. You are the watcher. Watch and record, understand what makes people tick.(less)
