30 Day Character Building Challenge

Day Twenty-Six

Plotting, structure, evolution – oh my.

For the next three days, we’re gonna talk about how the evolution of our characters can heavily determine the plot.

Even if you’re not an “outliner,” it’s worth taking the time to consider your characters. This is their story, after all.

Start a fresh document, and write you opening scene with everything you’ve learned about your protagonist in mind. Is there more you can add to layer in some nuance?

Think about some of the opening scenes in your favorite books or movies. Try to pick out from the very beginning what traits and emotions the protagonist possesses.
