#SCBWIWWA14: Franny Billingsley's master class on character

Why is it that we can hear the same advice over and over, but every time it takes on a new shade of meaning or resonates differently, depending on the project we're working on at the time? That's what I'm thinking as Franny discusses the importance of what a character wants... and why she wants it. Her examples and anecdotes and the depth to which she takes this fundamental narrative issue are enlightening. You can see the wheels turning in participants' minds as she talks. And even a glimpse of the handout ensures it'll definitely be a keeper!
