Do you know the secret to unforgettable storytelling?

To write a spellbinding book, you need a handle on more than just storytelling technique. You need to understand something that saturates every part of the writing process: people.

People write stories. (We call ourselves authors.) People read stories. (We call them our readers.) People fill the pages of stories. (We call them our characters.) Understanding what motivates people, what resonates with them, what makes them feel is the first step to crafting an incredible story. And it’s not as mysterious or mystifying as it seems.

Curious about me? Here’s my story...

I’m Faye Kirwin, an INFJ with a passion for prose, psychology and very pretty teapots. Lovely to meet you.

I’ve been telling stories for as long as I can remember—in fact, I can’t remember a time when my life wasn’t infused with story. From tales of golden geese and wild horses as a child, to fantasy epics as a teen, through to steampunk romps in my twenties, one thing has remained consistent throughout: my love of engaging and compelling characters.

That made studying psychology at university a natural choice for me, and I couldn’t help but annotate all of my lecture notes with applications to writing. How could I use this theory to flesh out my characters’ personalities? How could I use this research to add new layers of depth to my protagonist’s motives? How could I use this case study to create a resonant and emotional experience for my readers?

That’s when it hit me: why didn’t I write all of these lessons down and share them with other writers? And so Writerology was born.

My mission now is to help you understand the intricacies of the human mind and use that knowledge to take your writing to the next level. With a bit of psychology, you can create protagonists that pop off the page, antagonists that are more than just two-dimensional villains, and a whole cast of characters that think and act like real people do.

Oh, and let’s not forget you in all of this.

If anything, your own authorial mind is the most important of all, so I want to help you craft a writing routine that fits your lifestyle like a glove. Join the Storycrafters’ Circle—that’s the Writerology mailing list—and you’ll receive some super secret (and completely free) writer training, as well as an invitation to some incredible writing communities. Sound like your cup of tea? Become a member of the Storycrafters’ Circle here.

When I’m not crafting new content for Writerology? I’m neck-deep in the world of fiction. I spend my mornings lost in books, my evenings lost in my steampunk novel, Her Clockwork Heart, and every hour in between drinking lots and lots of tea.
