Developing Your Character & Their Arc of Change


A strong character change arc keeps readers turning pages, but how do you create one? The building blocks of a character's change come from their Goals, Motivation and Conflict - both internal and external. Over the course of the two workshops, we'll work on these areas, delve deep into who our characters are, what they want, what they desire and what's getting in their way. You'll leave with a great foundation for your character -- and some ideas for the scenes that will push them through their arc.
