Character Types in Literature

There has been a tradition at The Writer’s Chatroom making February Romance Month. For obvious reasons. This year we are attempting to make the topics a bit more inclusive for those who aren’t writing in the Romance Genre.

Character Types in Literature will be our February Focus

For our first topic chat we will refer to the 7 Character Roles in Stories as found at Writing 101: All the Different Types of Characters in Literature.
