Creative Writing For Beginners: How To Write A Novel - Characters

It is generally accepted that a novel can be split into various parts or elements, which helps to establish the different ways that we write prose in a work of fiction. These element are often referred to as the Plot, Setting, Narrative, Description, Backstory, Point of View (POV) and Writing Characters.

Even though it's the combination of all these elements, and more, that creates a great book, by far the most important ingredient is writing characters.

Jim Bruce

Blues Guitar Teacher and Author

After making a living out of playing acoustic blues guitar in Europe for many years, I became interested in teaching online about 15 years ago, and began creating lessons. In 2103 I was voted N?2 top blues guitar teacher by users of Truefire.com.

While blues guitar remains dear to my heart, the last year I've been concentrating on novel writing and future classes will reflect this. It's all about creating and being the best we can possibly be!
