Vivid and memorable characters aren't born: they have to be made

This book is a set of tools: literary crowbars, chisels, mallets, pliers and tongs. Use them to pry, chip, yank and sift good characters out of the place where they live in your imagination.

Award-winning author Orson Scott Card explains in depth the techniques of inventing, developing and presenting characters, plus handling viewpoint in novels and short stories. With specific examples, he spells out your narrative options—the choices you'll make in creating fictional people so "real" that readers will feel they know them like members of their own families.

You'll learn how to:

  • Draw characters from a variety of sources
  • Make characters show who they are by the things they do and say, and by their individual "style"
  • Develop characters readers will love—or love to hate
  • Distinguish among major characters, minor characters and walk-ons, and develop each appropriately
  • Choose the most effective viewpoint to reveal the characters and move the storytelling
  • Decide how deeply you should explore your characters' thoughts, emotions, and attitudes

Cet ouvrage est consacré à des conseils pour donner vie et intérêt aux personnages de fictions dans les romans ou scénarios. Pari réussi d'un bout à l'autre : lecture passionnante, pédagogique et qui contient de nombreuses sources d'inspirations. La pédagogie s'appuie notamment sur de nombreux exemples et analyse de situations réelles. Remarquable et très professionnel tout en restant accessible.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Tools for Creating Vibrant Memorable Characters 7 janvier 2012
Par Richard R. Blake - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In "Characters and Viewpoints" Orson Scott Card provides the writer with the tools for constructing colorful credible characters.

Card grabbed my attention as I scanned the table of contents. I immediately followed this by perusing the bold headings within the chapters. After reading the book I find it an important resource in my collection of books for the writer.

The book is divided into three parts. Card begins with pointers on inventing characters, where they come from, potential audience, and choosing names.
He moves on to help the reader/writer construct characters, including the protagonist, supporting, and minor characters. I particularly needed help in the area of voice, presentation, and person. Card included illustrations from well-known authors to reinforce the writing principles presented throughout the book.

"The Elements of Fiction Writing - Characters and Viewpoint" is an important tool for new writers. The book is filled with definitive techniques for creating vibrant memorable characters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very objective and rich 12 janvier 2011

A few weeks ago I discovered in Speaker for the Dead how distinct and memorable are Orson Scott characters. So, I decided to buy this book for learning the craft. And I'm very pleased. The author goes straight to the point with all the things a writer should consider for creating memorable characters, and how to do it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love this book! Helps make intriguing multi-dimensional characters... 24 décembre 2011
Par Eleanor Rose - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book has been great fun to use. First I just like the way Orson Scott Card writes. He gives very good advice on where to come up with unique characters. This is part of the fun of fiction--we have the unique opportunity to fabricate an individual that is a mish-mash of our life experience, our imagination and other influences. Mr. Card teaches how to do this and yet still have someone believable that the reader wants to invest their time with on their journey. He also helps us to determine how well developed the character should be -- are they the crux of the story or just a walk-on that adds to the tension or inserts a bit of humor? How to use characters to raise the "emotional stakes"? Mr. Card has suggestions for this as well. Finally Mr. Card gives us some solid suggestions on which voice to use and why that will influence the quality of our story. I like this book, its positive, and writing still feels fun.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiring 5 mars 2012
Par R. Ward - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have purchased 3 books dealing with similar topics. This is the first I was able to read all the way through. A testament to Mr. Cards prowess as a writer. The examples in the book are not disguised advertisements for the authors works. There are a wide range of examples given, all spot on to illustrate the current topic. My only complaint is that some of the novels mentioned as examples of a certain type of viewpoit are now out of print or at least in very limited supply (to expensive for me to buy as research). I will be going back through this work in a few months with a more practiced eye, hoping to gain a deeper understanding of Character and Viewpoint.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful 23 mars 2012
Par Vicki Hopkins, Author - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As an author, young in my craft and continually striving to improve my writing, I've read quite a few books and taken courses on character development and viewpoint. Some books I've read give superficial direction, however, this one does not. I found the book to be insightful and helpful in considering how readers view your characters and how emotionally attached or detached they become with the characters you develop. Great tips on viewpoint, as well.
