13.16: Avoiding Flat Characters
Your Hosts: Brandon, Valynne, Dan, and Howard
For our purposes, the term “flat character” refers to a character who lacks the depth required to maintain reader interest. In this episode we discuss how to avoid putting flat characters front-and-center in our writing, and how we go about fixing manuscripts that have flat character problems.
Homework: Take a flat character from media you’ve consumed and write a backstory to make them less flat.
Thing of the week: Artemis, by Andy Weir.
