Enneagram and Creative Writing pt 2 - Development of Fictional Characters

Dear Enneagram group,

After trying out some simple writing prompts in September, we will move in October to a few prompts designed to begin eliciting our imaginary responses in the fleshing out of imaginary characters.  This is where the Enneagram becomes intimately woven in with the process of creative writing - because vibrant, believable characters in fiction often have quite distinct Enneagram types (just like real people).

While the Enneagram can be a tremendous guide and source of questions about the process of characterization, it seems to me most useful once one has already envisioned a character one want to develop.  (Trying to imagine characters simply by demanding specific Enneagram numbers in given situations strikes me as strained.)

We'll explore some easy prompts and exercises recommended by writing teachers and writing groups to elicit imaginary characters and scenes.  No preparation is needed.  Some more challenging exercises (including some by a well-known Enneagram teacher) will also be discussed.


Hope you choose to attend.

    Nicholas. We talked about meeting up an hour early. I can't do an hour because I won't get out of work early enough this time. But I will be there at 7 for sure.
