Transcript Corey Mandell - Creating Characters June 9, 2013

Tonight was our first chat using different Twitter apps besides Tweetchat. After a few technical difficulties, we were up and running.

Corey Mandell talked about creating characters readers will love, writing intuitively vs writing to an outline. Read the transcript below or on Storify here.
