Heroes & Villains – Creating a Character Driven Story-Pt 2 of Plotting

***I just wanted to let everyone know, I have revamped every single one of my classes. I have learned so much this year about how to better these events, that I re-did them all. So, even if you have attended these classes before, I guarantee you there will be new information in them.***

All great stories need both a hero and a villain. Join award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake as he presents his class, "Heroes and Villains – Creating a Character Driven Story." This class will give you the tools you need to create both sides of this opposing force. You will learn to create each in a dynamic way that will capture the hearts of your readers, making them cheer for their triumphs and commiserate their losses.

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 www.maxwellalexanderdrake.com.

Thanks,

Drake

    Very informative and a great boost to understand your story isn't bad, just unbalanced and structure is necessary when writing a successful story.

    How many sub plots should you have in writing commercial fiction? 2-3? Killing your darlings is tough for me. Trying to not see the book as my baby and more like, my job.

      There are no right answers for your above questions. Each situation/story/scene/ch­aracter is going to be different. I always tell people this is why a good critique group is so important. You need to try it out on paper, then let people read it. They will let you know if you have succeeded or failed.
