The Mythic Guide to Characters: Writing Characters Who Enchant and Inspire

Published June 19, 2013 by Shadow Girl

Since there are so many aspiring writers here, and me being one myself, I wanted to share a book with everyone that is available for FREE DOWNLOAD today on Amazon.
This looks like it could be helpful, and, it only has 4 and 5 star reviews! I picked up a copy, saved five bucks, and will hopefully learn something along the way. If I discover just one new ‘thing’, I consider myself lucky.

The Mythic Guide to Characters: Writing Characters Who Enchant and Inspire [Kindle Edition] by Antonio del Drago (Author), and Derek Bowen (Editor) is available for FREE DOWNLOAD today.
Amazon synopsis says this:
As a professor, writer, and philosopher, Dr. Antonio del Drago has immersed himself in the literary and mythological traditions of the world.

Applying this knowledge to the writing of characters, he has developed a systematic, layered approach to character development that is based on psychology and archetypes.

In this guide, you will discover:
*The secret to writing multidimensional characters
*How to develop your character’s unconscious motivations
*Four ways in which characters interact with their worlds
*Five formative relationships that shape your character
*Nine mythic character archetypes and how to use them
*The difference between proactive and reactive protagonists
*Ways to define a character through dialogue and physicality
*The guide also includes a detailed worksheet that walks you through the stages of character development.

This is more than a book on how to write characters. This guide offers a practical, step-by-step approach to character creation that is sure to take your writing to the next level.
