Hi, Elena Maria!

Thanks for sharing this post — I'm really glad you like it :)

I wanted to let you know about a new post I've just written on the topic of Dynamic Characters. Like the Third Person narration post, it features solid examples from popular books and a nice infographic to reinforce what we're teaching. You can find it here:

I hope you'll consider sharing it with your readers!

All the best,
