Welcome to the course where I show you how to write an in-depth, enjoyable main character that will keep your readers interested. Don't make the same mistakes that so many novice authors make and create main characters that can challenge those of successful authors!
My name is Matthew Dewey and I am a writer. It is hard to say when my passion for writing began, but if I can recall it all started back in primary school. A small, pale child with not much to say, but plenty to write, or in most cases scribble, across a page. From there writing became a hobby, moving on to become a part-time job writing articles on various subjects from technology to programming. Suddenly, the spark was ignited and I wrote my first novel. From there I was hooked onto something that was akin to a calling.
Enough monologue, it is time to tell you what this course is worth to you. First, it is free to all beginner writers as a way to introduce them to me. You can find this course on my YouTube channel or on my website, thepennedsleuth. That being said, this course was created with the express intention to start a series of courses. In my rising through the writing world I found that information was handed freely, but not with enough dedication and forethought. The advice lacking and the examples poor. I decided to push through and after several years developed my own toolkit that is simple and multipurpose. The first and most important lesson I learned was how not to make a main character. From there I experimented and found the positives.
I will show you how to write:

Artist, Writer and Creative Mind
My name is Matthew Dewey. I am an art and writing instructor.
My first experience with art was of course in the early stages of my life where finger-painting a house was the equivalent of creating the Mona Lisa. With time I realized that my finger-painting prowess was nothing compared to my fathers oil painting. As the years passed my doodles became more detailed and my subjects more complex. I eventually struck upon portraiture in my last years of school. Never had I once considered doing portraiture, but upon trying it in class I had a knack for keeping the proportions of ones face as well as including plenty of detail. I found my passion through painting and drawing portraits. Some classical, through oil painting and some realistic, through graphic design and pencil drawings. It was a wonderful experience that I wish to share through my courses.
Secondly, my writing. My writing was truly a fantastic change in my life. Once again, in my later years of school I wrote my first novel. It was a spark that started a literary forest fire within my mind and short stories and concepts follows in step. I wrote more novels, competed in the NaNo WriMo, receiving an award for completing the task of writing a full novel within a month. My writing improved in quality and soon I was writing countless short stories almost every day upon writing a more novels, creating a series in which my style truly shined. I help beginner and experienced authors take the necessary steps to becoming fully fledged authors.
That is the story behind me and the courses I have created. If you are interested in seeing my works you can check Amazon for my books or social media for my creations. I have also created a podcast of reading my popular novels and short stories that you can listen to on my YouTube channel. I hope to see you soon!
So far it has clear ideas and information, but the presentation is lacking a bit.
