Plotting with Revelations Workshop

Character development, simplified.

Planning and executing a well-crafted character arc doesn’t have to be a struggle. In fact, it can even be fun and—dare I say—straight forward. The secret lies in revelations—impactful “ah-ha” moments that your hero experiences throughout the plot that challenges them to grow and change.

This workshop combines my own personal approach to writing character arcs with tried-and-true methods of industry experts. Using essay lessons and examples from modern fiction, I’ll show you how to use revelations to reverse-engineer your hero’s arc, creating a roadmap for their emotional journey. By the end of the workshop, you’ll understand your hero more deeply and have their arc clearly plotted.
