Write Bestselling Characters – Create a successful novel.
Are you a writer struggling to develop fictional characters so real that people will pay money to read about them? Then there is a little secret you need to know to develop detailed and realistic characters over and over again. Do you spend hours writing and rewriting your characters only to be embarrassed when you let someone read your work? Lets face it. Characters who are as emotionally moving as a department store mannequin are embarrassing for the writer, boring for the reader and spell financial suicide for any literary career you may hope for. Quite simply, if you cant develop realistic characters you will have no literary career. Period. Now, you may not realize it yet, but theres a happy ending to this story. Your story. Because, if you are sick and tired of struggling to develop realistic characters, you don’t have to be. In less than an hour you can discover a simple solution to developing characters that are so interesting people will pay money to read about them. But, before I continue, let me introduce myself. Hi, I’m Jim. I’m a writer like you and owner of e-novel-advisor, a website designed just for novelists like you where you’ll find a wide variety of articles on how to write a novel as well as how to publish and market it online. I’ve got Bachelor’s degrees in English and history and, because writing is a business, I’ve also got an MBA. But the real value I bring to the table is that I’ve got real world experience. For 20 years I’ve worked in education as well as a journalist and translator while writing fiction in the nooks and crannies of my busy day. I understand the struggles writers deal with and I teach you to overcome those obstacles so that you can be the writer you truly want to be. I know how frustrating it is writing draft after draft after draft to make characters believable. But the problem is not about your number of rewrites it is about the very foundation those drafts are built upon. It’s like building a house on a sand dune. Until you stabilize your foundation you will never succeed. Characters, interesting characters, are the reason, the only reason people buy novels. Even if a novel is plot driven would James Bond be interesting if he didn’t have a personality? But, Dont Take My Word For It. Just Listen To A Couple Of Nobel Prize Winners. When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters.” Said Ernest Hemingway. “A character is a caricature. And William Faulkner agreed. It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does. But, it’s more than just Nobel Laureates saying this. The only characters I ever don’t like are ones that leave no impression on me. And I don’t write characters that leave no impression on me. Says Lauren DeStefano author of the Chemical Garden series. So how, exactly, do you go about writing characters who leave an impression? Well, according to Scottish writer Samuel Smiles. Sow a thought, and you reap an act; sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit, and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny. OK, that makes sense. But what exactly does it mean and, more importantly, how do you, as a writer go about doing it? Well that’s where a simple, but little known, device called a Character Map comes in. A character map is a device that allows you to organize your thoughts and both break down a character into his or her most fundamental components and build him or her up into a character readers remember long after the last page. A character map is simple, but it’s deceptively simple and, unless you understand how to use it, it’s about as useful as a laundry list. And that’s where the course Create Fictional Characters People Will Pay Money To Read, Using A Character Map To Make Life Like Characters comes in. Who Is The Target Audience? A lot of courses advertise hours and hours of content when, in actuality, it is really just hours and hours of fluff that prevents you from getting to the content you need. This course is for writers who want to learn how to create realistic characters that people will pay money to read about. Any writer who wants to develop and portray realistic characters he or she is proud of. Any writer who longs to write characters so interesting that readers will remember them long after the last page. Any writer who longs to have a paying literary career. To that end this course is short and to the point. I teach you what you need to know and how to implement it in a repeatable process so that you can get on with your life and your writing. Let’s face it, you can’t pour a bucket into a tea cup. Long courses that teach you everything under the sun about a specific topic usually go unfinished and, more importantly, unimplemented in the student’s life. This is because the student is overwhelmed. Ever felt that way? Well, in my courses I don’t give you an elephant and tell you how to eat it.
