Perry Presents at CNU Writer’s Conference
David Perry will present morning and afternoon breakout sessions entitled Writing Strong Three Dimensional Characters on Saturday, May 4th at the 38th Annual CNU Writer’s Conference.
Draw Your Readers In!
Well-developed characters anchor entertaining and engaging plots and storylines. Because you want to draw your readers into your story and keep them engaged, you want to write exciting, flawed characters. Therefore, this workshop features strategies authors can use to flesh out complex protagonists, empathetic antagonists and interesting minor players. Subsequently, we will help authors address how to do this and more:
What traits make a character unique?
How do you avoid creating a caricature?
How do you make your antagonist more human?
What comes first; plot or character?
So, attend this workshop to learn more about great character development.
Proper Scene Formatting
Additionally, we will also provide suggestions for formatting your scenes and chapters to keep the reader turning pages. Where do In start my scenes? And, how do you end a scene or chapter so your reader wants more? Finally,
