What writers are saying about The Essential Character Creation Blueprint and Workbook:

FAQ

Can’t I make up my character as I go?

Planning and pantsing work well together. Making it up as you go can lead to inconsistencies that mean more rewrites and wasted time later, especially when it comes to a character arc that drives your entire novel.

Figuring out your character’s psychology and emotions first saves time, and once you have the big picture, you can then make up all the fun little details as you go, like their favorite drinks at the pub or the name of their sword or that they ride a giant alligator.

-

My characters are already awesome, so why do I need a guide?
