Dartford / Adult Education Centre

If you are thinking of writing a book but need some support, this creative writing course in Dartford will help you reach your goals. For any novel to truly connect with readers, the author needs to pay close attention to character development. Even if you’re writing an action-packed, plot-driven book where the characters are robots, it’s the human element that will resonate with readers. This course will focus on developing strong, charismatic charaters to attract the readers of any age.
In this course you will learn how to justify the character’s reason for existence by establishing the character's story goal and motivation. Learn the most successful way of depicting a character that has both strengths and flaws, external and internal conflict and also set them in the right place.
