I’d like to request a ‘positive character arc’ for myself.
You know, a must-read journey to better.
Today could be Chapter One. The world is introduced to me, all cringe-worthy flaws and gooey heart. I’m not likeable, but there’s a quirky sort of promise in me.
By the time Act One has run its course, somebody out there reasonably kind is hooked. Willing to stay with the story as the girl discovers what she needs may not be what she wants.
Oh, what a boring fairy tale that would be, I suppose.
Nobody likely to stick through it to the end.
Except me… and the positive character I’d become.
