Character is at the center of all fiction. Your fiction is only as compelling as the characters who populate it. In this series, we’ll discuss craft and theory. You'll read excerpts from published work and use these excerpts as a springboard to create your own work. I want to consider emotional engagement, internal conflict, voice, multidimensionality, and personal stakes, among other things. By the end of the series, you will have deepened your characters, turning them into characters who linger with your readers long after the story's last line.
