Re: Introducing Simple Essence Mapping

So it's mostly a character sketch, except using metaphors instead of adjectives and descriptions?

Wow. Thanks so much!!! And I think this will help me tons with giving depth to my characters-thanks again!!!!

Re: Introducing Simple Essence Mapping

Basically, yes. That is what it is, in essence anyways.

Most definitely! It is very helpful.

Re: Introducing Simple Essence Mapping

Thank you.

Has anyone done any simple essence mapping lately? Or has it sort of fallen away except in character fractals?

Re: Introducing Simple Essence Mapping

I've been doing some essence mapping, but I don't usually use SEM, more often I use X+. :P :D

Re: Introducing Simple Essence Mapping

Okay. That's good then. I tend to stick with this one, since it makes more sense to me. I should probably do some more soon.

Re: Introducing Simple Essence Mapping

Mmhm, I usually stick with X+ because it's the one I learned first, so it's simpler for me.... SEM seems pretty cool, though.
