The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes and Heroines
All writers want to create characters who are not only believable, but also capture a reader's interest. The Complete Writer's Guide To Heroes & Heroines, with its reader friendly format and easy-to-use worksheets, grants the writer the freedom to generate intriguing new characters. Throughout the book the authors give examples of well-known heroes and heroines from television and film so that the reader can picture the archetype in their mind. At his very core, every hero is one of eight archetypes. Likewise, with heroines, there are eight basic archetypes. The core archetype tells the writer about the most basic instincts of the hero or heroine, how he/she thinks and feels, what drives him/her and how he/she reaches his goals. Heroes & Heroines is the definitive guide to using archetypes to cast characters and develop conflicts that add depth to the story. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a novice. Heroes and Heroines will help you improve your writing with truly unforgetable characters. Great for writers of romance, short story fiction, novelists, and screenwriters!
