Give the Game a Rest!


Do you find yourself having trouble hitting a game more than once? Are you constantly trying to manufacture a second game move? Then you're doing it wrong! The easiest way to play game is to not focus on it for the entirety of the scene. In this course, we'll practice ways to rest the game so that moves can pop back up organically.

Does not meet January 22.
