S10E7 – Developing Character Strengths

Characters are the base of any story. Without well-developed characters, the plot will always fall flat. This series is dedicated to creating realistic, believable, and deep characters. It means getting to know them on a personal level. It takes developing more than their powers or strengths, but their flaws. It’s not easy but it is possible, even for those pantsers.

Nothing influences character decisions more than their flaws and strengths. Every character needs a reason to be party of the story and that reason is usually their strength. Sometimes they can first appear as a weakness, but it always defines the character. From physical strengths to mental fortitude, this episode is focused on what makes a character strong in a story.

First aired May 25, 2020.
