We tend to think about fictional characters as something outside of ourselves. We see them as something like statues we are carving or portraits we are painting. But that leads to creating characters readers have trouble relating to.

When I was studying for my master's degree in psychology, I saw that my characters were shallow because I rarely looked below the surface. Most importantly, I did not find the characters in myself.

This book deals with all those externals like physical appearance, job, and relationships, but it looks at those things in terms of the person inside the character. So, your character is tall. How does she feel about that? Does she hate it that some men are intimidated by her height? Does she take pride in it? Those are the questions this course addresses.

In this course you will learn:

· The Basics of Self-Identity
· The Four Informational Selves of Your Character
· The Physical Self: How appearance impacts self-identity and relationships with others
· The Emotional Self
· The Cultural Self
· The Educational Self
· The Occupational Self
· The Economic Self
· The Relational Self
· The Motivational Self
· Character and Plot: Inescapably Entangled
