In addition to my workshop on writing with dyslexia, I will be part of a character development panel.
Writing realistic characters is a HUGE necessity. You can’t skimp on that. Readers know better.
Since this will all take place online, you can submit questions in advanced to firstname.lastname@example.org. Just put “CHARACTER VS CARICATURE QUESTION” in the subject line and we’ll be sure to include your question and all our answers.
Writing well-rounded, believable characters is an art. My specific technique is to get out and meet as many different kinds of people as possible, going to workshops on the human brain and different personality types also helps.
You can’t write yourself into every story. That turns you into a one-trick pony. So stop by the page come panel time and we’ll be ready to offer our insight.
