Just wanted to share this little concept I stumbled upon the other day… Pillow Message. Coined by literary agent Adam Chromy, a pillow message is a short, pithy statement one might broadcast on a t-shirt, a bumper sticker or have embroidered on a throw pillow. It tends to be a microscopic glimpse of a person’s life philosophy.
I thought it might be a neat tool for a playwright to draw upon when creating a character. Additionally, it could help shine a light on how a character’s perspective might tie in to a theme in the play.
