I loved this course! I served as a great help with my characters and I’m excited to create new ones. While I was taking this course, I was working on a novel. This course helped me strengthen those preexisting characters and I was able to use some of the writing challenges by including them in my current draft. Great Course!
This course is definitely worth your time and money. It definitely helped me with some problematic characters in my novel. After applying what I learned, they went from flat to feeling real.
I’ve read a lot of craft books, blogs, and taken a couple of courses on character development. They had something to teach me. This course went a different direction in terms of how to do things. For example, in the module of firsts, the focus on seven different techniques is outstanding. Instead of the traditional physical description, the course provides other methods: non-physical, use of metaphors, etc. The video lessons were engaging and the narrator’s voice is definitely not dull. The pdf files are great for future reference. Highly recommend this course for price and techniques gained in character development.”
I think I struggle with giving characters depth and making them more life like! This course provided great tips for that and gave me more to consider when building characters.
This course was fun, and I thought the teacher had a lot of good insights which I plan to use in my writing going forward. Much appreciated. I will be watching for more courses from this instructor.
This course can be completed in 1-2 days (not including writing assignments) but it is complete, thorough, and provides suggestions and tips a writer can apply immediately. I know completing this course will help me create more interesting, mysterious and complex characters. Highly recommend.
This was very informative and fun lesson. I will definitely put his tips into practice.
Made me think about how much better I could make characters.
This is the second Bookfox course I’ve taken and I’m hooked. There’s so much information and the writing exercises are such a great way to flex my creative muscles. A+.
Excellent course. I am rewatching these videos again and again, and getting more out of them each time. Definitely 5 stars!
Clear, concise examples and instructions.
Mr. Fox gets his point across through simple graphics which relay the information effectively and efficiently. Also, the ‘Writers don’t Give Up’ should be a motto because it kept me going.
