From Amazon (about this book):
Writers know that their characters and stories should be multi-layered and believable. Now here’s a simple workbook that uses the same knowledge that gives therapists insight into human behavior to create fiction that hits the mark. Each chapter outlines an aspect of psychological theory as it can be used for writing and provides two worksheets to translate it into action – one to develop characters, one to develop the story.
Darian Smith is a prize-winning fiction writer with a degree in psychology and is a member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors. He combines these two sides of his background to provide simple, easy-to-follow tools that make use of established psychological theory to help writers develop fully rounded, interesting, realistic characters and inject conflict into their stories.
