Plot and Characterization

The best plots aren’t controlled by the author—they spring from the characters themselves. The more we realize that our characters are sovereign beings with independent consciousnesses, the better prepared we are to traverse plot and characterization. In this class, we’ll ponder characters’ decision-making, the causality between plot points, and how to keep a reader flipping pages. This strategy will help any aspiring writer dig deep into character and plot—to the core of the story.
