Character Creation – Who is that masked man anyway?

***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.***

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 agree with Drakes basic concepts and fundamentals. Complex character creation is the key to success.
