Unforgettable Characters Workshop by Kat Mattingly

How do you write an unforgettable character? It's a question so complex you might as well ask how to write a good book. That said, there are a number of common factors among characters striking an unforgettable chord with readers. Let’s examine those factors to brainstorm, troubleshoot, and flesh out our main characters, ultimately making them both compelling and memorable in the reader’s mind. Bring your protagonist or antagonist to play with on paper! 
At our Saturday workshop we will go into more detail about these various components that can help shape a memorable character:
? Give Them a Vulnerability 
? Introduce the Minutia 
? Let Them Fail 
? Give Them Values 
? Use Wit and Humor
? Allow Them to Be Self-Aware 
? Make Them Kind
