They act out various ways of reacting to situations, while staying in character, to experiment on a meta level with different possibilities. I try to imagine these run-throughs as fully as possible, like movies, and doing this reveals things I would probably miss if I thought about the story only in abstract terms. In your example, I imagined Parker running around, with Molly calling out directions, and I played out this scenario while bouncing back and forth between each character’s thoughts, to observe what they would want to say and do. From that perspective, while in Molly’s head, I found I had trouble directing Parker just as I (and Molly) would if we were really doing it. This kind of thinking is also how I conveyed Parker’s world in particular; because even though I was able see what she couldn’t – to lay out the complete situation – I could then just filter out the visuals and find that I’m left with humming refrigerators and jangling keys and other non-visual elements. Then I imagined what conclusions Parker would make of those observations. So the details come mainly from making movies in my head as I go and examining them closely.(less)

“Awww," I interrupt him with my sweet voice. "You figured that out because you just heard someone say it. And I know your name for the very same reason. Douchebag isn't very nice, though, so I'll just call you D.B."

"I'm--"

"Shhh..." I shake my head. "Don't ruin it.”
