Now that I’ve past the midpoint of my WIP, Divided Elements, and am on my way towards the second plot point, darkest hour of the soul and shattering enlightenment of Act III, I’ve been thinking a lot about my protagonist’s character arc.
“Her what, now?” you ask.
(Hahahahaha. Oh, reader – you are such a card!)
Her character arc. Wikipedia knows it as the status of a character as it unfolds throughout a narrative; Jim Hull stresses that we heed the difference between character growth and character transformation in a character arc; and Gabe Moura sums it up as the way in which a characters evolves, grows, learns, or changes as the plot unfolds.
Basically it’s the path your character (in this case, the protagonist) takes on their journey of self development, discovery, awareness and actualisation.
