At the center of a good story are the charaters in it. Without three-dimensional characters, our stories (fiction and non-fiction) have no voice and cannot be told. In this course writers will discover how to build and bring to life complex, vivid and unforgettable characters. 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. This course will be very interactive and inner active. Participants will have a chance to workshop their own writing or use activities provided by the instructor. One aspect of the class will focus on understanding and developing characters using the Enneagram.

Often the best way to understand and improve is to study the expert around us.  Just as great artists study great art, we can study great writers.  We can be told how something works or we can experience it.  Rather than focus on our own writing process, we will spend this course peeling back the layers of an actual bestseller.  Does a bestselling author use a 3-ACT Structure? Can we identify the nine plot points? How are subplots created and concluded? Where and why does the author use story versus plot? How does an author actually use backstory, showing tone and voice to portray his passion and themes? How are the protagonist and antagonist developed and put into battle? How does the author use scene and sequel to create the pace? Can we watch the author's creative process from beginning to end? Do novels actually follow a form(ula)? Let's delve deep into a recent bestseller and find out. In this class you not only learn all of the elements of a novel, you will see them in action.  If you want to write, this course will help you see why form(ula) works.  If you already write, this course will add to your arsenal of understanding.  If you are a reader, you will be more engaged in everything you read.
