The best way to be sure your readers keep turning the pages of your story is to give them heroes they care about. Think Winnie the Pooh, Anne of Green Gables, Harry Potter, Tom Sawyer.So how do you create such memorable characters? In this workshop you will learn a ‘clustering’ technique to help you create your main character. To get to know your heroes intimately, an excellent way is to interview them. You will be provided with a detailed list of interview questions for your main character who will then lead you to writing a great story.
