Tonight, my kids’ writing club has its inaugural meeting. We’re talking about character.

As in, what makes a good one?

I’m going to have the kids name their favorites, and talk about the things their favorite characters have in common. We’ll learn a little bit about archetypes, and cliches–and how to use them to make your own characters memorable.

My favorite characters of all time include Anne Shirley, Harry Potter, & Ender Wiggin. What are yours? Other faves we’ll be talking about are Despereaux, Charlotte (of Charlotte’s Web), and Judy Moody. I’m sure the kids will come up with others.

I can wait to see what they create! Next week’s class? Setting & World Building.
