Writer’s Circle – Unbelievable Characters
April 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Nothing irks a reader more than seeing a character in a story do something they simply would not do, usually to just to make the author’s life easier. Sometimes they also fail to do something painfully obvious, again as a convenience for the author. Yes, if the protagonist behaved more realistically a novel may be reduced to a short story, but it’s the author’s job to face the challenge of keeping their characters believable for 300 pages. Join this discussion of failed characters and strategies for keeping characters likeable, engaging, and most importantly, believable.
