Do you find it challenging to create memorable, life-like characters?

This course with award-winning author A. R. Levett guides you through how to create believable characters readers will fall in love with by identifying the story function of each one, differentiating them from each other, putting them in conflict with each other, drawing on archetypes to flesh them out, and using archetypal journeys to develop character arcs for them so they come across as authentic.
