Advanced Writing w. Gary Pinnell

“And Then A Hero Comes Along”- February 13th: That hero lies in the writer. Harry Potter and Scout Finch were students. Rocky Balboa was a leg buster for the mob. Celie from the Color Purple was abused. All were great heroes because their writers built a character arc. If we do our jobs right, Rocky, Luke Skywalker and Marty McFly fail, fail again, fail a third time, but then face the crisis, change, and resolve the central conflict.
