    Great characters are the foundation of any good story. Learn how to bring your characters to life with one of the co-authors of two books on creating memorable characters. Find out how you can come up with heroes and heroines who go from cardboard figures to believable people.

    Make them come alive – from selecting just the right name to giving them emotions and quirks that make them individual. Find out how to weave their history into the story and how to help them develop a motivation that can stir the conflict in your book. Learn how to make them grow and change to achieve a believable ending.

    This class can help you develop characters for all genres and teach you lessons that you can learn and use in every story you write. We’ll also look at how to create better villains and how to make secondary characters more than an afterthought. Learn everything you need to know about characters and their place in your stories.

    Becky Martinez always teaches a great class. But this time I noticed some issues with the yahoo group that I have heard others complain about but had not experienced myself. Becky couldn't see our posts sometimes, other times we couldn't see her posts. For example, you are now telling me the course is over, but she only posted the last lesson a couple days ago and has not responded to the last few lessons worth of assignments. I would prefer that the course be truly complete before I am asked for a review, but in this case I don't know if the course isn't complete or if the yahoo group issue makes it look incomplete. Because of this yahoo group problem I will hesitate to take another savvy author course.
