The Write Recipe : A.I.M.

Time to bring your characters and composition alive!

“Hello, I am Tom.”

Based on a name like “Tom”, do you know whether that person is a loyal friend or one who will betray you one day? How much do you know about a person when you first meet him?

If you are only meeting “Tom” in a story without being able to actually see him, he will become an even bigger mystery!

The question is: Why do we need to know more about “Tom”?


Good stories have characters that we can understand and relate to. Characters are central to a story as what they do and go through can trigger our emotions. These characters keep us reading to the end.

This is why writers need to let readers know more about the characters. With only a given name like “Tom” in the story, will you be able to understand “Tom” and be engaged in the story about him? We do not think so.


It is frustrating when you are groping in the dark, unsure of how to create well-developed and engaging characters that will bring your writing to a new level. We want you to have clarity and to ace your shot with A.I.M.

“A.I.M is a strategy that is easy to apply and one that makes a difference in my writing. I like how it is easy to remember and how the course teaches me when it is important to describe a character clearly in a story. The activities help me to understand how to apply the technique and there are also lots of examples to build my vocabulary to describe characters well!”

Meet Our Teachers

Let award-winning author, Ms Xie, and Lil’ but Mighty founder, Mrs Chew, bring you on a journey to learn A.I.M. and meet new characters! Having seen how some pupils struggle with lacklustre characters in writing their stories, the duo are determined to provide a structured approach that will help children grow in confidence and clarity during writing.



  1. have characters who appeared abruptly

  2. have characters with abrupt or illogical details without proper build-up e.g. “Now I cannot fulfil my dream of going to Australia!” Tom cried as he watched the prize being presented to Xavier. (There was no mention of Tom’s dream in the story until the end!)

  3. contain irrelevant details and descriptions about the characters (usually being cancelled during marking)

  4. contain characters that lack depth

  5. are confined to the same plot as they always involve the same character


Tired of missing the mark? “The Write Recipe: A.I.M.” is going to change that. We are going to hit the bullseye with an easy-to-remember and effective structure to develop your characters.

Enrol now and enjoy the satisfaction of applying a simple strategy that will allow you to create more compelling characters in your next piece of writing!

This course will be entirely focused on developing characters in writing a story.
