Creating an internal monologue for the character.

Write what the character is thinking as he moves through the landscape. 

He may be recalling the events as if they happened in the past.

‚Äč Example
It was a day like any other.  I spent it looking for clues in one of the thousands of Nanotech buildings around Nanosaki.  

I pushed the container to the edge of the 87th floor and watched it fall down.  The noise it made thundered around the

empty buildings but there was no one there to hear and it was the only way I was going to get it open. I switched on

 the machine and there I was, my own face staring back at me.  It was coming back to me. I need to get to research facility B.  

What is that noise?  I better leave now. 

Oh No!   A gyrocopter. I'll head for the tunnels....
