Nathan Bransford, one of TVWriter™’s favorite writers and writing consultants is here to talk about how you can – and should – create characters who are shy but not passive…because just between us, in TV (although not necessarily in novels, short stories, et al) the fact that a character can control their situation is what makes them a hero, don’tcha know?
