Next week, November 17th, I'll be giving a master class on Creating Great Characters for Film and Fiction at the Pirates Alley Faulkner Society great literary festival in New Orleans. I'll explain how to build the right character for your story or how to create the right story from your characters. We'll be discussing the four classes of villains. And it's in New Orleans, the city that in spite of all its troubles knows how to have a good time. So y'all come.
From time to time I'll drop some techniques or ideas I've discovered that have made my writing better. Always good to share.
