Character development is something that drives a lot of stories.
A well-crafted character arc adds depth and resonance to your story, making it memorable for your audience. In this video I go through some of the basics of three common character arcs: The positive change arc, the negative change arc, and the flat arc.
Character arcs are the heart and soul of storytelling. They provide the emotional journey that connects readers to your characters and their experiences. Remember, no matter which type of arc you choose, strive to make your characters authentic and relatable.
There are a few Archetypical Character Arcs like the Hero’s Journey and the Maiden, but I won’t talk about them today. If you want me to do a video on that later, let me know in the comments. K.M. Weiland has written a great book on Archetypical Character Arcs if you want to learn more about that.
