Janet Lee Carey"Character Constellations: How Character Relationships Build Story"
Janet Lee Carey will launch the evening sharing some key things she’s learned in her sixteen years as a published author before we move to our main topic.
Character Constellations: How Character Relationships Build Story:
Plots are all about people. A story is created by a constellation of characters as they grapple with the same plot problem. We'll explore the various roles characters play, the dynamic energy of character interrelationships, and how to use this energy to launch your plot and add dynamism to your novel, your short story, and, yes, even your nonfiction. Includes character writing exercise.
