Developing characters who can carry a story – An Overview

In fiction, characters ARE the story. But not all characters are created equal. Whether you’re writing a thriller or a family drama, at least one of your characters needs to be irresistible – and readers will only keep reading if the questions being raised by them are compelling enough.

In short, to craft a story that readers will truly love, you need a complex primary character who will drive the narrative forward and engage your readers by making them care about what happens to them. 

So how do you go about creating such page-turning primary characters? Are there key characteristics needed to give them these special storytelling powers? 

This is the first of our FOCUS ON seminar series

We invite YOU to join us on Tuesday 26 July in this first in an exciting new series of live online seminars – as bestselling and award-winning author Pamela Freeman focuses on how to develop strong characters who are capable of carrying a story and enthralling your reader from start to finish. And speaking of finishes, you’ll also discover how to ask the right questions to shape your story into a satisfying character-based climax that will have your reader hooked!

Characters are the engine room of your story – and with the skills you gain in this seminar and following Q&A session, you’ll have the formula for a high-performance engine suitable for any narrative ride you take your readers on. Book your ticket today!
