Having trouble with your characters personality, motivation, alter ego, or just plain stuck in a rut about which character is the hero and which is the mentor? Check out this next title:
45 Master Characters, by Victoria Lynn Schmidt.
This is just a laugh out loud book with both the villain and hero, female and male personality type and motivation listed. Why is it laugh out loud? Because you will say, this is just like so and so. Then after a good laugh you will have the resources available to sit down and craft the intricate character you’ve always imagined but couldn’t quite figure out how to describe and motivate on the page. But Schmidt doesn’t stop there; in this book you will find the profiles for all your miner characters too. No, not done yet, Schmidt will also explain their journey and how to plot that.
Now you may think if I have the first book why do I need the second book. Because while the first book will masterfully explain the journey your characters will take, and a lot about the characters, this book will give you a more in depth look into the reason your characters do what they do. It’s in the personality. We want three dimensional characters for the villain, the hero and those characters that are essential to their progress. Here you can learn how to intertwine various aspects of multiple personality types to get the unique character you want.
