Alicia Rasley – Channeling Your Characters (Online Class Starts Aug 5)

Channeling Your Characters

In this interactive workshop, you’ll be exploring your main characters’ journeys, strengths, conflicts, and values. From these discussions and exercises, you can deepen your scenes and your plot with an emotional arc. And you’ll be able to individualize your plot events by determining where the characters start, where they end up, and how they get there through interacting with the other characters in the story events. Every exercise will apply directly to your own story, and Alicia will respond to each exercise individually with suggestions and feedback. Channel your characters, and deepen and individualize your story with insightful counsel!
