I’ve been dwelling a lot on inner journeys (inner arcs, character change, etc) recently. It’s a fascinating part of story telling, and I’ve got a work-in-progress that features a character with an interesting inner journey that I’m not sure I can pull off. So I’ve been studying again, and sharing what I’ve studied.
Kristen Lamb has an awesome post today called “What Ebenezer Scrooge Can Teach Us About Great Writing.” I love how she incorporates the Christian message of redemption in her post. By far, it’s one of the most powerful posts I’ve read in a long time. Hop over and read what she’s got to say, then pull out your WIP and see if your protagonist has an inner journey worth exploring.
