Strong, believable characters are one of the most crucial parts of good storytelling—and drawing the reader into your fiction. Together, we will delve into how to build a character from the ground-up, touching on description, development, and the importance of three-dimensions. This course will also help you find the right plot and conflict for your character, populate your world with the right secondary characters, and develop the right voice to help them express themselves.
