StoryWonk Essentials focus on the tools that every writer needs. Each stand-alone lecture introduces a vital concept, and explores it thoroughly; together, they’ll give you a thorough grounding in the craft and technique necessary to make your story the best it can be. Accessible enough to act as a first introduction but advanced enough to help you improve your work, this is the best place to begin, whether you’re a new writer, or just new to StoryWonk!
In the StoryWonk Essentials: Character lecture, Lani will introduce you to the importance of strong characters, balancing their strengths, weaknesses and vulnerabilities, and how to get to know your cast and communicate that understanding to your reader.
Why does character matter? Why do characters break, and how do you get them to arc instead? Why is vulnerability so critical in strong character writing? What’s in a name? Lani has all the answers you need!
The lecture package includes the video presentation, a copy of the audio track in .mp3 format, and a .PDF of examples. These files are all free from copy protection, so you can use them on your computer, smartphone, or other device — whatever works for you!

Please note: this lecture is very similar to Lani’s 201: Basics of Character lecture at Writewell Academy. If you’ve already purchased that lecture, you do not need this one too.
