The Character Map - A Writing Map into the Lives of People in Fiction & Memoir

How well do you know your characters? Do you know what they believe in, who their first love was, how they listen to music, when they first encountered death? Do you know what they'd think about you? The writing exercises on The Character Map will inspire you to create complex and authentic characters, as well as help you discover new things about the characters in your stories - explore the soundtrack to your character's life, look inside their bag and pockets, and sit with them on a park bench and talk about love.

Illustrated by Hannah Rowlands, with writing prompts by Shaun Levin.
