Where Story Structure & Character Arc Meet

In this workshop we will delve into the relationship between your main character's journey and plot-based story arc, and how essential both components are to creating a compelling read. When you’re lost in a great story, it’s not the use of language that makes you read just one more chapter before you go to sleep, or the brilliant use of foreshadowing. Instead, it’s the desperate need to know how our main character will “survive" the story problem: This is the essence of story arc. We will also discuss scene construction, how to infuse tension and conflict, show instead of tell, and drive the hero toward his ultimate transformation.
