How Characters Are Different from People

Lecture no. 3 from the course: Writing Great Fiction: Storytelling Tips and Techniques

How Characters Are Different from People

Taught by Professor James Hynes | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Characters are illusions, and the illusion often hinges on how much access a writer gives us to a character’s thoughts. Begin this unit on character with an examination of how writers choose which moments in a character’s life to dramatize, and then consider how knowledge of a character’s thoughts affects the story.
