Fixing Your Character & Point-of-View Problems
Janice Hardy

“Characters are at the heart of every story, and if readers don’t like those characters, they won’t keep reading. Make sure your characters keep those readers hooked.

“Janice Hardy takes you step-by-step through revising character and character-related issues, such as two-dimensional characters, inconsistent points of fview, too-much backstory, stale dialogue, didactic internalization, and lack of voice. She’ll show you how to analyze your draft, spot any problems or weak areas, and fix those problems.

“With clear and easy-to-understand examples, Fixing Your Character & Point-of-View Problems offers five self-guided workshops that target the common issues that make readers stop reading. It will help you:

  • Flesh out weak characters and build strong character arcs
  • Find the right amount of backstory to enhance, not bog down, your story
  • Determine the best point(s) of view and how to use them to your advantage
  • Eliminate empty dialogue and rambling internalization
  • Develop character voices and craft unique, individual characters
