Delve Deep Into Character
A Weekend Intensive Writing Workshop
Where do you find compelling characters?
‘Look within – many characters are to some degree a projection of the writer’s own personality. Characters are most effective when they are so drawn that the author can identify with them, sympathize with them, care about them, and enjoy their company.’ – NYT best-selling author Robert Dugoni
We think so too.
During this UNIQUE writing intensive workshop, you will learn a cutting edge technique to delve deep into yourself as a writer, so you can delve deep in your characters by using seven steps.
Step 1. Define your character’s core attributes.
Step 2. Explore the inner needs that shape a journey.
Step 3. Develop a deeper point of view.
Step 4. Understand what affects change and growth in your characters.
Step 5. Learn how to create inner conflict.
Step 6. Delve deep to engage your readers with emotion.
Step 7. Ask one question to determine the inciting incident.
You’ll also walk away with an electronic copy of Delve Deep Into Character with worksheets to use to build your next compelling character.
