Nanowrimo: Creating Character

All right, Nanos, here’s a list of posts on various aspects of creating character and character dynamics, in case that happens to be the issue. Since I’m teaching this character stuff live and in person this weekend, hopefully I’ll be able to add some new stuff tomorrow… and then back to structure elements. Hopefully.

So much writing, so little time…

Thanks! I probably spend more time on characters than any other aspect of writing.

Hey Alex,

While I didn't care for the subject matter, THE WRESTLER made my top ten list for downward character arc.

What is WIP? I've seen it in the comments on a few of your posts, but I don't know what it refers to. I'm new to your blog. I'll be trolling around some more, but it would be great if you could point me in the right direction.

Hey Blank - WIP is short for Work In Progress. Whatever project you're currently working on.
