Weiland's Workbook shows you how to create the kind of people your readers will relate to and want to follow on their journeys. She explains the various character arcs and their intricacies, and provides lists of questions to help you discover which arc is right for each of your characters. While the book covers the topic in a little more detail, the workbook provides enough detail to help you through characterization. This is a definite can't-miss workbook.
If you follow only one author's writing advice, Weiland is the one to study. She takes the mysterious, sometimes hard-to-understand pieces that make up a novel and makes them accessible and crystal clear. Her advice can definitely take you from writer to author.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for my honest review. However, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and applying it to my present work, and I look forward to referring back to it in future projects. I recommend this book to any writers who are trying to create interesting characters.
This book is among those chosen few that I keep physically on hand, at desk top for quick reference. They're my go to references that sit among good company, and K.M. Weiland's sage advice on this craft is as highly regarded by myself as any other author I keep nearby. I'm particularly choosy about what uses my desk space so that's saying something.
As with any of Ms. Weiland's books on this craft, any time a character arc glitch might arise, Creating Character Arcs Workbook is as great for referring back to as it is for the first cover-to-cover reading. If I were asked by any aspiring author which books I would recommend, I'd begin with Ms. Weiland's collection including the workbooks, Stephen King's On Writing, and Elements of Style as the most solid base that could possibly be built upon for full comprehension of this craft. Then keep them close at hand.
