A Writer's Guide to the Zodiac

A Writer's Guide to the Zodiac: How the Stars Can Help You Understand Your Characters. This book is a MUST for all authors, novelists, writers, aspiring writers and self published writers!

Astrology offers writers a powerful tool - a means by which to get to know the characters in any story - how they feel, think, and what motivates them.

As the individual energies associated with the star signs are explored, each character comes alive and their destiny is revealed.

In A Writer's Guide to the Zodiac Giselle Green examines the zodiac in terms of the four elements, earth, fire, air and water. She describes the twelve sun signs and relates them to the elements.

Examples of characters from well-known books have been used throughout, and writers are shown how even characters with the same motivation may desire a different outcome. This is a book which makes the patterns of the zodiac accessible to the writer and to anyone with an interest in astrology.

After writing my second book, Pimp My Site, I started rewriting one of my novels I knew I needed to improve my characters and turn them into real life people not just names in a book.

To do this I have used several great titles for creating characters as well as information on the zodiac and stars. Although some people think it is a bunch of ‘hog-wash’ the zodiac is a great way to forming various character traits, personality flaws and foibles that we all encounter in the best fiction ‘people’.
