Personality, Character, and Characterization

Everyone knows what “character” means: a person in a work of fiction or drama. Except when it means inner integrity. Or an unusual person (live): “He’s a real character, that one,” or an exceptional person: “She’s got a lot of character.” Where does “personality” fit into this? And how do we show personality, integrity, lack of integrity and all the other elements which make up character?  Explore personality, character and characterization, including in your own writing, in this intensive workshop.
