Character Writing Master Class with Julie Gray
Sunday, April 10, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CDT)
With Julie Gray!
Dedicate a day to learning specific tools and exercises to help you create characters that undergo truly satisfying metamorphoses!
- Learn how not to fall in love with your character on page one, but rather, the new, improved self they will become by the time you type FADE OUT.
- Learn how to move your main character from an old way of being to a new one through a plot that unfolds because of your main character’s active flaws and vulnerabilities.
- Learn an exercise that demonstrates that looking inward at your own wants, desires and fears gives you permission to be much more honest (and dramatic) about those of your main character.
- Learn new tricks to contextualize and ground great dialogue.
-and much, much more in this truly satisfying and fun all day workshop with Julie Gray!
