Description: A story isn't powerful because of what happens, but because of what changes in your characters because of what happens. Those changes must be rendered with a deft hand so the reader enjoys a sense of discovery as small changes become larger changes in a subtle yet discernible way. While writing a book-length project, though, accumulating detail can obscure clear arc development. We’ll look at many types of arcs that, once interwoven, can offer the reader a richer understanding of your character’s journey.
