Craft Your Characters

Do the characters in your novels seem FLAT? Or are they all too similar? Do you STRUGGLE with their dialogue?

If so, you're likely just tapping the surfaces of their personalities. To create MULTI-DIMENSIONAL characters who will keep your readers turning the pages, you have to get to know them inside and out. In CRAFT YOUR CHARACTERS you will learn how to create characters who leap off the pages and into the hearts and minds of your readers.

Here is what you will learn--

• How to create DISTINCT, believable characters who are rich in DEPTH and DETAIL, including inner (personality) and outer (appearance) traits.

• Why your main character must have personality FLAWS—even if she or he is essentially a good person—and how to develop them so that readers will be able to empathize with and relate to your character.

• How to develop a relevant BACKSTORY AND WORLDVIEW for your characters and how to reveal them over time in your novel to avoid slowing down momentum in the story.

• How to discover your THEME as you write and allow it to unfold without getting heavy-handed (a big no-no).

• How to create a CHARACTER ARC so that your main character evolves over the course of your novel and feels more authentic.

Here is what you get--

• Four online video lessons covering:

  1. Inner and Outer Dimensions
  2. Character Flaws
  3. Backstory and Worldview and
  4. Theme and Character Arc

• Worksheets, handouts, resources and assignments

• Immediate and permanent access to the course and all materials so you can review the lessons as often as you like for as long as you like.

• $147.00 credit toward future purchase of CRAFT YOUR NOVEL, an online course that will cover plotting, outlining, settings and more! To be released in the fall of 2017.

What her students have to say--

"This course allowed me to take the idea that existed in my head and bring it to life! I enjoyed building the main character, what she looked like, what she ate, what her childhood was like. I'm so appreciative of being able to get to know her intimately and tell her story."
— Michelle B.

"The instructional video was so easy to understand. She outlined the content clearly and logically. So, although the assignments no doubt stretched me in brand new ways, I genuinely looked forward to jumping into them."
