Creating Fictional Characters

A non fiction book by

Characters are the lifeblood of fiction. There is more to writing a novel than simply supplying an exciting background or location.

No one can write a successful novel without creating the right characters to people those pages.

In this comprehensive and easy guide successful novelist Jean Saunders has defined all the necessary ingredients for creating believable characters that come alive on the page.

Learning to love the characters you write about is the most obvious, yet often overlooked requirement. Then come the basics - from choosing the right name to dressing your characters in the right clothes for their personalities.

Jean explains how to understand and get to know them, giving them hopes and dreams and goals, and developing their conflicts and motivations to get the best out of them. She also demonstrates the art of visual writing to help make your characters as appealing as possible to your readers.
