Characters, Characters Everywhere … But My Story’s Going Nowhere

By Shellie Arnold
2010 FCWC Faculty

Do you have an idea for a novel, but don’t know where to start? You need great characters.

Are you stuck in your story and don’t know why? The problem might be your characters. Knowing their hair color or pet’s name isn’t enough. You have to know what makes your characters tick and why they are who they are, before you can translate it to the printed page.

Want to make readers care about your characters? Give them characters they can sink their teeth into. Come learn this step-by-step process for building believable, powerful characters.
