"Forget making your characters 'sympathetic.' Make them remarkable.

How many times have we heard the advice: "Make your character 'sympathetic.'" Or scarier yet, 'relatable.'
But maybe that’s not what you need...

When you start focusing on making your heroes and heroines sympathetic, relatable, and the potential death blow--likable, there’s a good chance you're going to end up with characters—and stories—that are bland, predictable, and sometimes, straight-up boring.

Your readers don't want to RELATE to your characters. They don't even necessarily want to *like* them. They want to be INSPIRED by them. Shocked by them. Impressed by them. Taken aback by them. Swept up on an adventure with them.

Come learn how to craft truly memorable, remarkable characters in those critical opening pages. Characters who have the power and presence to take your readers on a rousing adventure (however ‘small’ your story landscape is). Characters who will force readers to keep turning pages to discover what remarkable, surprising thing they're going to do next.

Make your characters remarkable. Your readers will thank you. Then buy your next book."
Class will cover:

*What’s remarkability’?
*Key elements of remarkability
* Opinionated
* Conflicted
* Imperfect
* Resourceful
* Has a superpower
* Accepts External World Challenges with Action (even when they're wrong!)
* Go Out of Comfort Zone
*Using secondary characters to reveal remarkability
* Why it works: Tension and the ‘gap’

This is one of the best most informative workshops that I've taken to date. It's a must to learn how to write compelling characters. I have no affiliation with this teacher but wanted to share with others that are sitting on the fence deciding to take this course. Do yourself a favor and take it. It's smart, HELPFUL, and stuff I haven't learned in any writing book to date!!
