RWA 2016 Great Classes from Michael Hauge

I attended two of his classes at the RWA Conference. The characterization one had a great outline, but unfortunately, I had to leave for an editor appointment. He pointed out that in a romance, each of the two “heroes” should help or encourage the other to work on the flaw and perhaps relinquish an original goal because of love for the other person. The class where he analyzed Hitch was an eye opener. The most important takeaway was his comment that the first thing a story or movie must do is to elicit emotion. He also pointed out that when you introduce a character, you don’t mention his flaws right away, but show them later after the audience has gotten to know and like the character.DSCN1130
