The Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Chapter of RWA Presents
From Cliches to Keepers: Knowing Your Characters Through Myers-Briggs Presented by Carrie Lofty
November 7, 2011 through November 21, 2011
Cardboard. Cookie cutter. Cliché. When it comes to characterization, those are hideous words! Whether you’re writing your first book or your fiftieth, creating fresh-and-blood protagonists can be a huge challenge. But how to find and nurture that spark of life?
By using Myers-Briggs personality assessments, you can dig past surface observations to understand your protagonists' true natures. You'll learn their strengths and potential weaknesses, how they view the world, what causes them stress, who they trust, what they value, and how others regard them. In doing so, you'll not only create believable characters with more realistic emotions, but you'll develop more consistent plotting and sizzling romantic chemistry.
