Mary Robinette will be teaching a class on Stressing Your Characters at Northbrook Public Library on Sat April 6 at 1pm Central. You can register here.
Everyone has multiple facets of their personality. Some of the most difficult decisions a character has to face are internal, such as the tug between work and family. Even if external circumstances are the catalyst, the conflict comes when a character feels like they will fail in some way. In this workshop, we look at how to pry at the parts of your character’s self-identity in order to create gut-wrenching conflicts.
