Josh Adams: Get in Character

Adams Literary is looking for bestsellers and award winners.

Some teaser notes from Josh Adams' session:

What do bestsellers and award winners have in common?

Create unforgettable, memorable characters!  These characters have broad universal appeal.  Readers should be able to relate to them all over the world.  Look for unique personality; magnetic personality.  No characters are perfect.  We need character flaws we can relate to.

Remember that characters need stakes.

Ask yourself:  can someone spend years of his/her life with your character?
