Characters Are Story

As part of preparing people in my region for writing in November, I held an exercise-intensive workshop covering characters:
1. Characters are story.
2. Characters do things.
3. Characters need a reason for what they do.
4. Characters have things that happen ‘off-screen’ or ‘off-page.’
5. Characters aren’t flat or perfect.
6. Characters talk.
7. Characters observe.
8. Characters change.
9. Characters have bad stuff happen to them.
The material, in a variety of formats, is available at: kprep2
