Hurting Fictional Characters Realistically

Hurting Fictional Characters Realistically by former medical doctor MJ Carlson is an interactive presentation designed to give writers a better understanding of the injuries they inflict on their characters, adding to their credibility and allowing them to more fully connect with their readers on an emotional level. In this talk you will learn:

  1. The most common injuries in fiction and how they typically occur
  2. The reason many writers have difficulty with describing pain and ways to effectively relate the experience to a reader
  3. A simplified overview of recovery times for young, otherwise healthy characters

As MJ Carlson says, “You’ll never watch a ‘Diehard’ movie the same way again.”

This talk takes place at the University Club of Winter Park on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. The talk is free and open to the public.
