О курсе

At the center of a good story are the characters in it. In this course aspiring writers will discover how to build and bring to life complex, vivid and unforgettable characters. We will study the choices a writer makes to bring all characters to life on the page, and we will perform written exercises in order to develop a variety of writing and pre-writing techniques, in order to create a variety of characters. We will learn how to use our own life experiences, and the people we know (and how not to!). We will develop inner (thoughts and feelings) and outer (appearance, habits, behavior) lives for our characters and see how that can lead us to richer and more interesting stories. We will breathe life into our characters and let them surprise us....

I loved this course! Extremely useful and hands on. The course instructor was really impressive, both informative and empathetic, both arty and to the point. Totally admired her style of instruction.

The course was very well-structured and challenging. The instructor is very experienced and good, thus used relevant materials for this course, be it the guests, or the assignments, or the examples.

I think this course is the least efficient out of all others. The course material is good, the lecturer is well informed but there is no coordination between the lectures and the lecturer whatsoever. The week's planning is inefficient, there's no relation between the assignments and the syllabus, and the author only ever conducts shop talks and invites guests. I do not mean the least disrespect to the lecturer at all, just that they could've offered a more thought out and planned course.

I didn't find this module very helpful and some of the assignments were truly confusing. I wish there was more "meat" in the sessions and more availability to access the lecturers more readily when there was confusion. I don't like the fact I pay money for other people to "assess" my work when half of them don't even read my submissions properly. Or the question. Or both. So if the lectures don't stretch me, I find my money spent unwisely.

I found the assignments very challenging to understand as there was very little clarity in the way they were written. Had to constantly reach out to mentors and forum discussions to actually understand what the instructor wanted.

Overall, I did not enjoy this course as much as I enjoyed the other three courses of this series.

It was quite simple but the tips are quite general. It is good for beginners. However, it was a good excersize and was fun in a way.

I didn't think there were many solid pointers...and not much that was original coming from the instructor herself.

The lessons do not seem to match the assignments. The instructions for the assignments are confusing.

Instructions were very unclear compared to the rest of the courses in the specialization.

I find that most of the time I don't know what is expected of me in the assignments

The course is really nice, but there is a lot of reading other people's books out loud and conversations and not a lot of practical support. The most useful piece of advice I got was on Week 2 from one of the discussions boards, which was actually hard to find because the discussion board is flooded with people requesting their material be reviewed, which brings me to the next point - I don't this the random assignment algorithm used by Coursera is very efficient. Many times I had to wait for a while to get my assignments reviewed. Also, because this is peer graded, there are a lot of people who are not taking the course seriously enough and provide crappy feedback. For the price of $49 it should be a much better course.
