Narrative Basics Lesson 1: Characters

Characters and their experiences

Names or labels: What are they called?

Every character needs a name, or at least a label, to identify them.

This is Charlie.

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryRoald DahlSource

This is Booger.

Those are both names. But sometimes we never learn a character's name; we only know them through a label or description.

This is my cat.

This is the worst villain in the world.
