So what's the trick? Where's the shortcut?
Well, kid, there isn't one. It's all about hard work. Luckily, Rogan gives plenty of tips on how to do that work and make it fun while you're at it.
Though some of the advice is fairly standard (raiding your evening news broadcast or paper, if it still exists, for story ideas), Rogan takes it a step further and explains exactly how you can translate a snippet from the news into a full-length feature film, complete with compelling characters. His suggestion to follow the Post Secret blog is also unique, as it not only allows a writer to think about the types of interesting, personal stories found on the site, but also lets them get into the heads of real people who are using their own words to tell the story. A gold mine, for sure, both in terms of plot and character development, in addition to analyzing different types of voices.
Tips on creating complex villains (even if you're working within a comic-book universe) are also worth the price. As Rogan notes, "You don't have to enter years of therapy to write interesting characters. Just pay attention..."
Short and to the point, with great functional writing exercises that'll get your characters acting like real, live humans in no time.
I have been looking for no nonsense instructions on how to improve my character. After reading this I have been able to understand how to make my other characters come to life, and I am now in another re-write to make it all happen. After this rewrite I will solicit more reviews and, I am sure, my character will not be part of the 'needs work' area. I'm glad I found this book. Thanks a lot.
