Thirteen Ways to Make Your Characters Come Alive
(part of the Everything Your Need to Write a Beautiful Story series)

Nothing is as important as your characters, even in a plot-driven thriller. Your characters much be real people with their own conflicts, angsts, and insecurities. The best of them must be flawed and the worst of them must have some sympathetic trait.

In this workshop we will look at thirteen ways to make your characters come alive and to make your readers care about them. We will look at narrative tension more specifically as it relates to character, and we will look at narrative distance as the lens through which your characters are viewed.

Learn the character creation techniques used by professional writers.
