Character Agency: Creating Proactive Heroes

Another published sample of Wulf Moon’s Super Secrets in DreamForge magazine!

This Super Secret is on proactive vs. passive heroes. In many submissions from beginners, the protagonist is swept along by circumstance, passively reacting to events instead of exercising their will over events to change their circumstances. It’s a big problem among hopeful writers, often creating a weak internal character arc and failing to engage the reader! I can teach you how to fix that! Read this Super Secret for FREE HERE!

Wulf Moon’s SUPER SECRETS. “Nail Your Opening: How Driving to the Story Creates Accidents”

The editor of DreamForge Anvil magazine, Scot Noel, asked me to go on a journey with him. He told me he had a new focus to his magazine this year, his goal being to publish hopeful writers that may have never been published before. He was aware of my work with my award-winning SUPER SECRETS workshops. He knew many writers from my workshops had won major international contests and had obtained their first pro sales after taking them. He asked me if I’d like to write articles for his magazine based on the Secrets I taught in my workshops. I agreed.

This is the article that was published on April 21, 2021, in their first official issue of this new venture. It’s free to read. And it’s a good example, both of how I teach, and of one of the chapters from my upcoming books through Mark Leslie’s Stark Publishing Solutions. I trust you’ll enjoy it. And if you enjoy the sample, I hope you’ll join my Wulf Pack Club. You’ll be first to know about the Kickstarter event leading up to the books.

Here’s the editor’s forward to the article:

“What is an inciting incident? How do you know when your character has “crossed the threshold?” And why does “driving to the story” create a 12 car pile up every time? With this essay from Wulf Moon’s SUPER SECRETS series, you learn how to start your story at the right place and keep up the pace until the conflict reaches its height!”
