Does writing a Craft Analysis paper on characterization in a short story actually help you to be a better creative writer?? I'm finding it extremely difficult to get started!! And, the professor really isn't much help.... (first time teaching as a professor, first time teaching at this university) Analysis is a strength of mine, BUT, I usually read for pleasure and I'm supposed to be learning how to read like a writer - No more internalizing what I observe - and I'm totally lost. I already have my evidence and definition but have no idea how to proceed. Please Help!! Thanks!!

That paragraph really helps, much better than the profs examples. I found my approach - Literature is an Art Form that uses Craft Elements.
Sounds like your saying to analyze Character in terms of POV, Setting or Voice. Right?
Rf, I might not be understanding the assign. R you analyzing a particular short story? If so, then tell how the AUTHOR uses characterization or (?) to make the characters come alive. I'm a little confused.Ur prof can help. U can email me w/ syllabus
