2021 Gold Rush Writers Retreat

GETTING INTO CHARACTER.

Lucy Sanna This is a zoom course. Bring your laptop or tablet and headphones/earbuds. Please have Zoom installed on your laptop before coming.

Like method actors, writers must inhabit their protagonist-see the world through her eyes, live the world through her senses-in order to write from her perspective.
What are her inner values, unique traits, and perhaps mannerisms that will give her away? What are her attitudes, the way she talks, walks, her posture? What are her vulnerabilities? How do others view her?

Your reader wants to follow your protagonist throughout her journey, and the more the reader understands what makes her tick, the more she'll want to keep turning pages.
