NaNoWriMo Giveaway (Day 21): The Hero/Heroine Quiz

In honor of National Novel Writing Month, I’m going to be offering free content each weekday in November to help all NaNoWriMo participants (and, really, anyone who is working on a novel).
Here is today’s giveaway:

Day 21: As you craft your novel, try fashioning your hero or heroine after a specific character archetype. This often helps provide direction in terms of how he or she might act or react to the twists and turns of the plot. It also helps you determine the most powerful and compelling motivations for your character. To find out which archetype your character most closely resembles, take these two quizzes from The Writer’s Guide to Characterization. For more detailed information on character archetypes, check out The Writer’s Guide and 45 Master Characters, both by author Victoria Lynn Schmidt. To get this freebie, just enter your e-mail address below.
