Last night, The Tampa Writers Alliance hosted Christy-Award winner Angela Hunt.
With nearly five million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is the best-selling author of more than 140 works ranging from picture books (The Tale of Three Trees) to non-fiction books, to novels.
Ms Hunt spoke about the craft of Writing Characters. She gave insights on creating characters using the Myers Briggs personality test to create a well rounded personality. She then spoke about POV, and the importance of staying in one characters head throughout a scene. She also touched on genres, third-person vs. first-person, and the difference formulas for each genre.
We were able to coax her into relating her own personal story of becoming a writer.
Angela Hunt often speaks and teaches at major writer’s conferences and she participates as a founding instructor in the Glen Eyrie Writer’s Summit.
