Dave Chesson is taking us back to high school and college literature courses.
The topic: character archetypes.
Chesson first clarifies how archetypes are different from stock characters and clichés, then provides fifteen character archetypes to inform — not dictate — the full personality of a protagonist or antagonist.
The fifteen character archetypes, with descriptors and illustrative examples, are up on Chesson's Kindlepreneur blog.
