Mastering Character Motivation (The Dancing on Coals How-To Series Book 3) Kindle Edition
Motivation is one of the key elements of any novel. Strong, believable motivation can drive your story from page one to the final scene, while weak or unrealistic motivation can be the kiss of death. In this workshop, we discuss how to avoid clichéd and contrived motivations and how to build on your basic characterization to create characters that actively push your story forward. We also tackle that dreaded nemesis of so many writers—author intrusion.
This is a great follow-up to Creating Characters with Character, our book on characterization, but can also stand alone, especially if you've already some preliminary work with your characters.This Master Class workshop has been presented in part at various writer’s conferences, including Romance Writers of America annual conference in Washington, D.C. (2009) and an excerpt from it was published as an article in RWA’s trade journal, Romance Writers Report.
Part of the Dancing on Coals How-To Series. Based on the Dancing on Coals Master Class.
