Write Your Best Book

Feb 6, 2020


With Angela Ackerman

Episode 1 – Show Notes


It’s not enough to simply write a great story. You must include characters, like your protagonist, who are well-rounded, well-developed, likeable, and relatable (while still flawed and human). In today’s episode, I sit down with Angela Ackerman, co-author of The Emotions Thesaurus and co-founder of Writers Helping Writers.


In this episode, we will:

  • Learn why it’s so important to flesh out your characters
  • Learn how to come up with a backstory for your characters
  • Learn how to create motive for your characters’ actions
  • Learn how to consider your genre when creating your characters
  • And much, much more!
