Writers SA presents an on-demand workshop you can watch in your own time for a short time. We'll analyse what makes a great 3D character, as well as what you need in order to keep your plot exciting and your reader turning the pages.
When we start out writing, we have this kernal of a fantastic idea and we put pen to paper or fingers to keyboards without really knowing where we might end up. Pretty soon your characters fall flat and you're in a muddle because you don't know what happens next or how your character should be reacting to the hurdles you're throwing at them.
Join Writers SA's Bronwyn Tilley (writing as Bronwyn Stuart) as we analyse the elements of realistic characters with real wants and needs and personalities, what makes a good story, what makes for juicy conflict, and how to connect your readers to your characters.
Total time for video is 1.5hours and has writing exercises built in. Suitable for aspiring and emerging writers, especially if you start lots of stories but aren't able to finish them.
