Welcome back from the Winter Break! I hope you enjoyed the fantastic contributions by your fellow readers – if you haven’t seen them, you can check them out starting here. Thank you to everyone who helped! The break was much needed, and time well spent! My buffer is nearly back up to full and I’m feeling much refreshed!
I did make a new video over the break about designing a character arc. While I did write it specifically for Original Character Tournament applications, it’s a technique I use in every project. LeyLines included. Each character has an eight-step arc, as laid out in the video, on a season, series, and chapter basis. Definitely recommend it as a useful writing exercise! The process I use is adapted from Brian McDonald’s book “Invisible Ink” which is at the top of my writing resource list!
