There is so much more to creating a compelling story than simply constructing strong plot lines. Some of the most interesting books depend on the strength of the characters, their backgrounds and relationships even beyond the rise and fall of the action.

In this session, we’ll explore what goes into believable, multi-dimensional characters around which a story can grow. We will:

  • Examine the elements that create an unforgettable, relatable character
  • Discuss how to allow characters to shape their own destinies
  • Use the quirks and individuality of the characters to drive the story
