The Character Development Planner was designed to aid writers of fiction - both novelists and screenwriters - in developing great characters. Many writers struggle in this area, with many wondering how they can better develop their characters in order to better know and write them. Character development is an important consideration when writing fiction. Ask any professional writer who specializes in character-driven novels or scripts and they will more-than-likely tell you that well-developed characters are just as vital as well-developed stories. Developing and creating great characters can take some serious effort and time on your part. Whether working on the protagonist, antagonist, or any of the minor, yet no less important characters, a tool like The Character Development Planner can help you with this integral step in the writing process. With over 50 prompts in 4 different categories, the 25 Character Plans contained in this book are a great way to really dig deeper into the lives of your characters to develop them more fully. All you have to do is fill-in the blanks to start building your characters - their backstories, wants and desires, family and friends, and so on. How you choose to fill out the Character Plans in this book is entirely up to you - you can be as basic or as detailed and creative with your answers as you like. But remember, if you want to create characters that really stand-out and carry the story, you will need to have a clear picture of them in mind when you begin writing your novel or screenplay - the more thorough you are in the development stages, the better you will know your characters.

This book offers a unique approach to storytelling, connecting the Enneagram system with classic story principles of character development, plot, and story structure to provide a seven-step methodology to achieve rapid story development. Using the nine-core personality styles underlying all human thought, feeling, and action, it provides the tools needed to understand and leverage the Enneagram-Story connection for writing success. Author Jeff Lyons starts with the basics of the Enneagram system and builds with how to discover and design the critical story structure components of any story, featuring supporting examples of the Enneagram-Story connection in practice across film, literature and TV. Readers will learn the fundamentals of the Enneagram system and how to utilise it to create multi-dimensional characters, master premise line development, maintain narrative drive, and create antagonists that are perfectly designed to challenge your protagonist in a way that goes beyond surface action to reveal the dramatic core of any story. Lyons explores the use of the Enneagram as a tool not only for character development, but for story development itself. This is the ideal text for intermediate and advanced level screenwriting and creative-writing students, as well as professional screenwriters and novelists looking to get more from their writing process and story structure. surface action to reveal the dramatic core of any story.
