5 Questions To Ask the Hero of Your Story

Posted by: Shannon Moreau on Nov 19 2017, 6:50 pm

This past weekend I attended my LERA writing group’s Enchanting the Page Conference and our guest was Michael Hauge, a story doctor and script consultant who was worked with, among other people, Will Smith. (!!!) On day two of the conference, a group of thirteen of us (ooooh, insert Twilight Zone music) gathered in a freezing cold hotel “library” and spent ten hours breaking down the stories we’re working on, with Michael Hauge guiding us through character development and plot points. It was intense. It was scary. It was emotional. It was exhausting. And at the end, I was overwhelmed by sadness, the kind of sadness that hits you on the last day of summer camp, when you’re saying goodbye to your friends before getting on the bus to go home.

I could work on story stuff all day. What Michael Hauge helped me zero in on is character development. In my blog post, I list 5 things I’m asking my story protagonist. Check it out here.
