Character Creation – Who is that masked man anyway?

Great stories need great characters. But how do you go about creating the back-story for them? A back-story that will capture the reader's hearts and have them hoping that the characters succeed. Join award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake as he helps you answer this very question in his seminar "Character Creation – Who is that masked man anyway?"

Please download and print out the class handout to bring with you as one will not be provided. Find it, along with other handouts, in the my MAD writing section of my website at

    I write non-fiction, but these classes have been great for me. I always try to start my articles with a true story and the things I'm learning in the class really help me to make the story a better. Also I love the things I learn because I watch a lot of movies and now I know why I like or don't like them. Thanks Drake for doing these classes.
