Week Three: Characters - What They Are and How to Create Them

Now that you have an idea of what it is that drives fiction forward, you’re ready to learn how to use it to create a successful, attractive and powerful set of characters.

This week, you’ll discover:

• what the thing called a ‘character’ actually is, and the secrets of how to rapidly build a convincing one that attracts readers

• what the archetypal characters are in any masterpiece of fiction and how they work together

• how to create a protagonist who isn’t just a cipher or shallow copy of someone else’s character

• the crucial role of the antagonist in a story and what all antagonists have in common (it’s quite a lot, as you will see!)

During this week’s lesson, you’ll be asked to apply what you’ve learned to grow your own protagonist - and get feedback from me and any advice if needed.
