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....

Don't shy away from the challenging course material contained within, especially in Module 2. If writing was easy...y'know where this is going.

Really loved this course but the assignment instructions could be simplified. I cut and pasted them then added bullets to sort them out.

I am learning a lot, particularly that I can write up to several thousand words per day; not just words, but meaningful words.
