Character Desire: What Your Character Wants, Needs, and Doesn’t Even Know She’s Missing

November 17 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Romance novels have given a whole different connotation to the word “desire,” but desire in literature doesn’t have anything to do with intimate relationships or lust. Without it, there is no character growth, no forward movement of plot, no obstacles to be overcome. In this workshop, we’ll do hands-on exercises to learn what the three prongs of desire are, why they are crucial to every story, and how to incorporate them into your manuscripts and illustrations. Yes, even a picture book must have desire!
