Character Writing for Fiction Writers
Want to bring your stories to life with unforgettable fictional characters? In this three-session workshop, you'll create and develop richly detailed characters with the necessary elements to go the distance. Create "starter" characters from your own well-stocked storehouse of personal experiences, news stories, images, artifacts, and music. Next, give your characters a vivid inner life by borrowing character development tools from psychology such as the Johari Window, the Myers-Briggs personality matrix, VAKT Learning Styles, Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, and more. Finally, develop your character's back story, that gold mine of detailed information you can tap into whenever inspiration runs dry. Discover your characters; family history, sociocultural background, and much more. You'll leave this class ready to write!
