SET UP TO CHARACTER: Knowing certain things before the character steps into the story provides Checks and Balance on the characters as you write to assure your character stays “in character” and does in fact grow internally, and intentionally by the end of your story.
DOWN AND DIRTY WAYS TO CREATE STRONGER CHARACTERS: Strong characters create strong stories. But creating strong characters is not necessarily easy. Come prepared to understand how to create “the same but different” characters editors and agents are always talking about, and how to bring YOUR characters to life.
PRIMAL BRANDING: What is it and how does it impact your longevity as a writer. This goes beyond your website color scheme or your tag lines to analyze why some writers become iconic and others are less visible.
BODY LANGUAGE: The differences between men and women on the page and how to make sure your men are men and your women are women. Also some tips and techniques to use body language to enhance the emotion in your writing.
