Want to bring characters to life on the page as vividly as fine actors do on the stage or screen? Getting Into Character will give you a whole new way of thinking about your writing.

These highly effective techniques will help you:

~ create characters whose distinctive traits become plot components

~ determine each character's specific objectives and motivations

~ write natural, meaningful dialogue that moves the story forward

~ endow your characters with three-dimensional emotional lives

~ use character motivation to bring action sequences to exuberant life
