Struggling to find a strong voice again, Courtney vacillates between a confident leader and a self-conscious outsider. But Courtney and Tammy will both be born anew in an unexpected way when Courtney takes on the legacy of a long-lost superhero... SERIES REGULAR.

Tell me about one conversation that you could have that would cause you to "relive" and experience, step-by-step, a relevant moment in your history as you walked the person you were sharing it with, through it. Please include: Who it is with. Whether or not this conversation is on the phone, in person, or with yourself or with God. What you want from this person and what they want from you. (Hint: make them at odds.)

  13. "On my way to the audition, I'll be in my car...." where am I going as the character, what am I doing/contemplating?
