We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. Romans 12:6-8
Sherlock Holmes. Gandalf. Emma. It’s hard to have a good story, let alone a classic, without memorable characters. Are your characters believable? Are they doing justice to your plot? How deeply are your characters drawn?
Every writer wants to create characters that have depth and are believable. This year, Kathi Macias, award-winning author, will teach a session at the OC Christian Writers Conference on character development. Kathi will draw from Romans 12 to show writers how to define their characters in a three dimensional way that makes them unforgettable. If you are ready to take your character development to the next level, then be sure to sign up for the conference and sit in on Kathi’s session on Saturday.
