Character Development

     I can't tell you how much my novel has changed along the way. I am always learning something new. For example, I've learned it's important to know who your character is not only in the beginning but also by the end. Usually, this person has changed for better or worse. Developing character arc is like planning a route on the map. You want to get from here to there. Internally and externally, what needs to happen to the character along the way to get them to end of the novel? Just like people, their change must be gradual and plausible. The events that happen to them along the way shape this absolute and irreversible change.
