How to start? Do one of these a week. Set aside 20 minutes, record on your smart phone, and practice scooping the lines off the page. See the pictures (or 5 second movie) for every person, place, thing, and event in your material. Practice using clichés, as-ifs, and thru-lines. Then play the same scene from another character's point of view, knowing only what that character knows.
