This evening our writers workshop will work on Novel Characters.
Whether your novel is plot- or character-driven, your characters must be dynamic. Interesting. After all, in most successful novels, the characters' wants & needs drive the story. Think Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler.
So, if we do not have a Civil War background or a devious main character, how do we make our characters dynamic? How do we make a seemingly dull character interesting? And, how many characters do we need?
Join us and we'll do some exercises to help. As usual, I'll provide handouts to help guide you.
