WHO IS THIS CHARACTER?
So a lot of people have been contacting me about the blogs I write about character, and while there are a lot of books on character development, there aren’t any on dialogue, which in scripts is oh-so-important.
Developing characters whether for novels, film or television is one of the hardest things that writers struggle with and it’s the biggest issue I see when reading scripts and books. All the characters speak and act the same.
Look at the 5 very different characters on this page, now in the same situation, they would all act very differently and they would all speak differently and yet I get scripts all the time where all the characters talk exactly the same.
I am going to be teaching on online class in September of this year-yes next month-dedicated to characters and the way they speak.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. I am working on my website and email isn’t quite up yet, so my hotmail is good for now. 🙂
I can only take a limited about of people to start and I have a few spots filled, so contact me soon. The class will start September 10th.
