Do you struggle with coming up with characters with compelling motivations? Do you feel like you’re writing the same protagonist over and over again? In this one-day class, we’ll use dice to come up with new characters with random motivations, relationships and objectives. My goal is to shake up how you think of the people who populate your stories.

Absolutely zero D&D experience required!
