Develop Vivid Characters


A Tutorial Writing Program


Writing a memoir—and this is true of creating any work of art—is fueled both by inspiration and by craft.

In this tutorial program, you will learn specific skills to craft compelling characters for your memoir. No more stabs in the dark, hoping you got it right. In developing your craft, you are learning to channel your inspiration in a direction that will bring meaning to the reader.

It seemed hard to do, write characters that ‘come alive.’ My best was not good enough. I was missing the mark, and Develop Vivid Characters helped me finally understand what I needed to do and how to do it. Thank you, thank you.
