Fifteen minutes long, because you're in a hurry, and we're not that smart.

17.30: Know Your Characters

Your Hosts: Dan Wells, Mary Robinette Kowal, Maurice Broaddus, and Howard Tayler

How well do you know your characters? Sure, you might know their age, nationality, and perhaps wardrobe, but how well do you know their internal characteristics? Do you know them well enough that you can write dialog that sounds like them? In this episode we discuss how you might approach this problem.

Credits: This episode was recorded by Daniel Thompson, and mastered by Alex Jackson.

Homework: Write monologues in which your characters tell you about themselves.

Thing of the week: The Ballad of Perilous Graves, by Alex Jennings.
