Writing Scripts 101
The structure of the course actually freed me, freed my characters to take on a form and personality and voice of their own.
The Character course is so substantive, well researched, and well written that it opens up your creative pores in such a way that what comes out of you in the exercises truly puzzles you.
The assignments moved me closer to "hearing" a character when I write.
The in-depth presentation of building a character was beyond what I had expected. My characters are more detailed and round; no longer do they appear as flat as the page they are written on.
If you wonder how to get started creating characters or want to develop your skills further in this area, I would highly recommend this course.
HR and finance manager

Gotham lights a fire to keep me chasing my writing dreams.
I learned several key techniques that have completely altered my approach to character development.
Great for developing wonderful, round and rich characters for any type of creative writing project.
In a very short period, I developed a much better understanding of character development.
If you want to learn what makes a character exciting and interesting, take this course!
This class shows you how to dive deep into the minds of your characters.
database and office manager
A very in-depth, intellectually stimulating and mind-opening experience with a lot of good psychology lessons.
An awesome stepping stone to building a story of any kind.
The course was insightful in terms of how best to evaluate characters and make them come alive.
A great way to learn pragmatic ways to create multi-dimensional and believable characters.
This course helped me redefine my characters. They aren't just words on a page, but a breathing piece of the story.
It opens your eyes to how to write great characters. And, oddly, it opens your eyes to the people around you.
A character-building series of sessions that make you more aware of people around you, as well as yourself.
