The Writing Life
The Life Cycle of a Character
The Life Cycle of
Character workshop discusses how
to take a character from conception
to maturity until he becomes a character who
jumps off the page and
the reader's heart.
We start with a seed�the
of a character. We germinate that seed,
bringing it to life by giving our character
wants and fears.
We continue to grow our character, taking
teen years by exploring his emotions and
learning more about him.
As your character matures, we add more
exploring different aspects of his or her
personality and history.
The Life Cycle of a Character is for
writers of all
discussion and samples of tools such as
character charts and growth
"Thank you for the wonderful
teachers loved it, and it was THE
most highly rated workshop since we
began keeping records several years
