Matt Bird has spent considerable time in the storytelling world, from screenwriting and filmmaking to podcasting.
His latest book shifts to another important piece of your work: the people in it.
Joanna Penn hosted him on her podcast recently to discuss some of the advice from The Secrets of Character: Writing a Hero Anyone Will Love.
You can read a transcript of their conversation about writing powerful characters or listen to the segment on The Creative Penn; points they cover include how to decide on your hero, how to use real-life details to bring fiction alive, and why a character doesn't have to be likable.
