Ordinary World

It may not seem like "Ordinary World" or setting is important to character development, but Ayn & Sam explain in vivid detail exactly why a character's ordinary world should be considered when creating your character and his or her detailed traits. They illustrate this concept with commercially popular novels and movies in their video lecture to help inspire you to construct a setting and character(s) that work well together to create a commercially compelling story for your novel or screenplay.

This lecture also includes two graphics describing the "Ordinary World" of Bridget Jones's Diary and The Hunger Games.
