Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, for every writer there’s generally room to amplify a
character arc in your novel once you’ve completed a full draft. But what does that
process look like, beyond firming up the first scene, the climax, and the final scenes?

We’re in season four of the podcast, Behind the Scenes of a Full-Novel Revision, in
which I’m discussing a full novel revision with my fellow writer, Alex Doherty, a fellow
middle-grade writer. In today’s episode, we’re looking at one of the most important
aspects to consider in a full-novel revision, the character arc.



A huge thank you to Alex Doherty, who records and edits Creative Lift.

The feedback approach we’ve used in this season references Design Thinking tools and
mindsets. If you’d like to explore further how to apply Design Thinking to your writing
process, check out our Skillshare course, Design Thinking for Writers: Create a
Compelling Character, at this link.
