March Craft Focus: Character Arcs

Posted by Nicky Drayden on Mar 5, 2010 in Announcements |

Next up, character arcs! Or lack thereof as the case may be. I’m personally a fan of characters that don’t change, because let’s face it — change is hard in real life. But we’re not writing real life, we’re writing fiction, so at some point or another we’re going to have to deal with THE CHANGE.  No, not that change…the one characters go through. What makes them different (for better or worse) at the end of the story from what they are at the beginning?

So, during March we’ll be dissecting characters. It’s not as gruesome as it sounds. Then again, maybe it is. We’ll just have to see!
