In the process of developing plot and character, it is easy for writers to lose track of what is important and meaningful. Understanding how to utilize the Transformational Arc greatly expands a writer’s ability to identify and stay focused on unifying principles that link plot and character to the thematic, emotional and even spiritual dimensions of a story. Inside Story takes an innovative approach to screenwriting, illuminating the inner journey of the character, which enables writers to build an internal structure that forms the transformational arc. Knowing how to utilize the power of the arc will enhance your ability to move beyond traditional story structure and construct scripts that are more powerful, meaningful and marketable.
