In Writing the Intimate Character, novelist and teacher Jordan Rosenfeld explores how point of view creates powerful narratives and dynamic characters in fiction. The book is separated into three parts which explore character building, voice, plot, point of view, and more. Each chapter offers examples and exercises to help writers breathe life into their characters. Rosenfeld reminds writers that “readers connect with characters whose senses they can experience, whose minds they can enter, and whose emotions they can feel” and guides them through the ways to create vivid characters.
