Ten Ways to Get into Characters’ Heads
It’s rare that the movie is ever better than the book. Why is that? Arguably, the written word is better at giving us glimpses into characters’ minds, and it’s that internal world that really gets readers identifying with characters, investing in the conflicts, and understanding the stakes of a story. In this session, we’ll examine how writers can go about conveying that interior world. We’ll identify several practical methods that you can use in your prose writing to strengthen your character portrayals and enliven your conflict.
