The Emotionally Engaging Character by Ruth Ann Nordin

If you're writing fiction, one of the most important investments you can make is in your characters. They are the glue that holds your story together. Without them, the reader has no reason to keep reading. If you want to write a compelling story, your characters need to be so real that they engage with the reader on an emotional level. The purpose of this book is to help you do that.

The topics covered in this book are as follows:
The importance of writing what you're passionate about
Why you should know your characters more intimately than your readers ever will
How to incorporate bias, imperfection, and things unknown into the character's point of view
Why the character is always right
Making the character "react" instead of "act"
Why the character should influence plot, setting, and conflict (instead of the other way around)
Tempting the character to the point they might break
Delving into emotions
How supporting characters can enhance the main character's journey
