You Are What You Want [Susan Meyers]
Introductory/Intermediate | Characters make a story come alive, but what makes a character herself come to life? Description? Dialogue? Behavior? Aristotle said that human beings are their desires. In this workshop, we’ll explore character desire as the main motivation for plot, looking at how characters interact, struggle together, reveal (or don’t) their inner wants, and respond to what gets in the way. You’ll leave with a clear sense of how to enliven your characters and use them to build your story.
