Helping Other Writers: Workshop with Laurie Schnebly Campbell-The Psychology of Creating Characters

I am a member of CTRWA, which is a Connecticut chapter of the Romance Writers of America.  They are particularly gifted at putting on amazing educational events for writers.  I always leave feeling smarter, inspired, and energized to write.  I will be at this workshop, and because I believe in its value, I’m passing on this information to you.

CTRWA Proudly presents…

A Day with Laurie Schnebly Campbell
About The Psychology of Creating Characters

“Here’s your chance to create deep, well-rounded, flesh-and-blood characters!”
Linda Lael Miller, NYT bestselling author

What makes characters the way they are is the same thing that makes real-life people the way they are. Through years of research related to her background as a counseling therapist, Laurie has identified the four factors that determine personality. And the good news for authors is that these same factors create personality traits that automatically build the conflict that is so essential to your story.  These four things are: birth order, priorities, enneagrams and personality scales. In this exciting, hands-on workshop, Laurie will teach you how to use these powerful tools to create characters and conflict that will grab your reader and keep them turning the pages.
