Harrington 21M.604 Fall 2005 Handout, Week 2 OBJECTS Why are objects important? They can mean so many things and they can transform. For example: A talisman A good luck charm Something that carries meaning and/or memory Can be almost magical—or a character believes the object is magical Can stand in for a missing person Negotiating over objects—always interesting.

They can be stolen, lost, bartered, given away, valued, devalued, destroyed, damaged, used in a new way. In a scene, try introducing a dangerous object or substance, but make it dangerous in a new and unexpected way. Think larger than the obvious weapon or poison. Why is it dangerous?
