 NON-FICTION FOR WRITERS

 

Every good story needs characters who are so real, your readers feel they would know them the moment they walked into the room. Veronica Bright’s aim is to help you create realistic, believable characters, who will have your readers rooting for them all the way through the ups and downs of your story. She tells you about the ancient wisdom of the Enneagram. This is a tool for understanding human nature. It points out the unconscious motivations behind the ways we react, and shows how characters may change and grow in the unfolding of a plot. There are helpful examples of many character combinations throughout the book, and also eleven sections providing exercises to help you consolidate your developing knowledge. If you want to understand people better, improve your skills and make your fictional characters memorable, How to Create Believable Characters Using the Enneagram is waiting to help you.
