How to Write Characters that Resonate with Emotional Truth

In this session, we'll discuss how to create relatable characters by analyzing the anatomy of emotional truth. After examining three kinds of truth: personal or experiential, community or social, and scientific or objective, we’ll assess pertinent facts about people (demographics) and their values (psychographics). We’ll also discuss integrating non-verbal cues such as body language, appearance, and communication style. You’ll be able to use a two-step approach to creating characters based on emotional truth, and those are the people that connect with readers on a deep, meaningful basis.
