September 16, 2018 Meeting – Using the 4-D Wheel to Build Character Conflict with Sionna Fox

The 4-D Wheel was originally created by world-renowned sex therapist Gina Ogden as a tool for helping her patients rewrite the stories of their problems by considering the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of their issues while physically walking a circle around a four-quadrant wheel. What started as an intuitive practice has now been supported by neuroscientific findings about neural networks and the way our brains are “wired for story.” When we change the stories we tell ourselves, we can foster change in our bodies and minds.

What does this mean for your characters? By approaching their conflicts from 4 dimensions, we can deepen their conflicts, and better understand the motivations that stem from them. By having your characters rewrite the stories around their past pains–their hole-heartedness, their voids–you can bring them to a more satisfying happily ever after.

BIO:

Sionna Fox is an author of sweet/hot HEAs, die-hard romance fan, and lover of things nerdy and twee. She has a small problem with washi tape and planner stickers, and tagging her in anything involving foxes, llamas, or women in suits is a surefire way to her heart.
