How to Build a Character Based on Your Sweet Spot Map: SPM Series, Part Three

How to Write Fiction: Build Characters using the Muse's input!

Two weeks we went over building a Sweet Spot Map, last week we went over building a world.  This week we go over how to use the map for character building.

In this episode Author and Fiction Teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) discuss how to take what you've written down on your map and build the characters that will inhabit your worlds, using examples from both of our works. Anything on these maps can be used to build characters you've just created or enhance ones you've had around for a while.  We go into how much to include, how to look at different sections in more than an obvious way and drawing from your own life.
