SYNOPSIS: You already know what occupation your characters have, their backgrounds, their moral views, etc., but how do you put that into their actions and words in a novel? This books help you look at characters and have your characters act true to their traits. This book examines personality types and reveals the motivations and influences behind a range of behaviors. For example, your main character is an only child. What makes him act differently than if her were the last of six children? What is your character's religious background that it will influence their outlook on sex? If your secondary character had a history of shoplifting, that is very different from having committed a murder. This book will help you have the correct traits in your characters for their actions, show more than one side to a character, and add traits to your characters to make them more realistic and interesting. A must for every writer.
