The book focuses on Character, but covers the topic so thoroughly that it addresses other aspects of story writing, including plotting, conflict, dialog, short stories, novels, children's stories, radio, movies, etc. Tips from this book can rescue a manuscript that is falling flat and revive an author who is getting stuck at some point. Her presentation is sharp and to the point. Maren Elwood not only tells us in a straightforward way how to make characters come alive, how to make them intrigue and captivate the reader, to make him or her care about them, but she does so in a dynamic way that makes learning her methods stimulating if not exciting.

Fictional characters exist in only two places, neither of which is on the printed page. They exist, first, in the mind of the writer and, second, in the mind of the reader. Plot is character in action. Contrast is the intangible ingredient, the catalyst that makes life exciting. They want to be loved, they are tribal, they instinctually favor stories over scientific evidence, they make mistakes, and - Alice Dreger.

Loved the book. I've read many of the reviews and didn't think much of it. To be honest, the only reason I bought it was because my favorite author suggested it. I'm glad I listened to her advise. Loved it! Probably the most helpful I've read.

The book was published first way back in 1942, so there is a definant past feel to it. As in, it's not written the way these types of books are in the present. Not sure if I'm even saying it right. Just got this tone to it that sometimes can be hard to follow.

Overall: Really glad I bought it. It's really got me paying attention to other author's stories and the way they portray there characters. Has helped me with my own tremoundously.

If you don't own it, BUY it. It's worth it even if it is outdated a bit. Better then reading 100 books written in the present on the same subject. Trust me, I've read many of these.

Character development is quickly becoming a lost art. It seems publishers are following formulas (you basically have the same story written but you change the location and names and go for it) and more authors don't want to take the time to learn the craft.

If you are truly interested in learning about Character development, Characters Make Your Story is an excellent place to begin. This older title steps you through the what, how and why of character development and is the best book I've read on the topic (and I've read quite a few).

I was attracted to this book by a review that simply said that
if you were only allowed one How-To book on creative writing,
this would be it. I have a collection that would fill the
average-sized bathroom. I found that the report was correct.
It's not a recent book, written in 1942, but it's as up-to-date
as anyone would like since these rules don't change. All one
really needs is a good book on plot-driven stories and this one
on character creation. Get this one first, since character stories
are better literature than action stories.

This is an oldie but goodie, and should be part of any serious fiction writer's library. Clear, concise, and engaging, the advice and information conveyed within stands the test of time. Highly recommended!

A MUST HAVE for any writer.. Though it is dated, it is very relavent to any writer

This is an excellent resource for any writer hoping to create fully developed characters. Excellent, easy read with some great suggestions. Loved it.

Very good book.
This is the third book I've read on Characterization. I'm on a mission to learn all I can about developing Characterization in my writing. I've owned this book for years and maybe even decades and never took the time to read it. I should have. I've read Creating Character Emotions by Ann Hood and Characters & Viewpoint by Orson Scott Card and I have three more books to read by three other authors after I finish Maren Elwood's book. So far Elwood's book is the most detailed with the least fat. She covers every possible element of developing your character. She has impressed me with how serious she must have been when she sat down to create a book to teach future writers and maybe some older one's too how to create characters that will leap off the page and run around the house. Any serious writer, who wants to develop his or her craft, should read one of Elwoods books on Character development. I could go into greater detail about the book but it would be better if you just bought one and read it for yourself.
