Deep Characterization explores the difference between characters created to act out a story for an audience and characters created to act out a writer's internal dramas. A story written
for an audience is a promise to take that audience on a story journey; a story written for the writer's own needs is a promise to transport him or her to the fulfillment of personal needs.
This work is meant to help writers who have been 'stuck' at a certain level of storytelling without understanding why.
The book is a great resource to help new writers understand why their stories are having the impact they want with an audience, or failing to have an impact.
The book includes a list of personality traits in writers that can translate into passive main characters in a novel. Passive, diffuse main characters are the number one problem in first novels, so this is really a must read for new writers.
