Your story isn’t interesting…

26 Mar

What is your character arc? In other words… where have you come from and where are you heading?

In creating a character, where a person has come from is very interesting, it’s the characters back story. We never normally tell this story though, because it’s already happened, it’s fixed and unchangeable… so in another one way it’s actually not that interesting. Your back story is only fascinating when it pertains to your current predicament; especially when your past makes your future goal seemingly impossible.

Your story is journey towards a goal, over, underneath, around or through many severe of dangerous obstacles. If you have no goal, then you have no obstacles and henceforth you are living or creating a very uninteresting story.
