How to Write A Character Arc (homestudy course) by Lynn Johnston

How to Write a Killer Character Arc Homestudy course by Lynn JohnstonA big shout out to Lynn Johnston, a fellow writing coach cohort, and friend. She’s got a new class up on creating character arcs. If “your character’s emotional journey IS the reader’s emotional journey,” as Lynn says, then you need to learn how to master writing a powerful character arc.

I’m half-way through it and am loving it. Her class is great for plotters and pantsers.

Since I’m about to edit and revise my 4-book science fiction mystery series, I’m really loving her brainstorming suggestions to how to get clear on my character arcs.

Brainstorm Your Character Arc

Lynn encourages you to brainstorm at every stage of the way and to follow through on the ideas that you’re passionate about.

She’s also great at giving lots of examples. Lastly, I like that you can download the course and listen on the go — my favorite way to learn.
