    I needed reminding of this. My character arcs can sometimes look like this: Initial State => End State … with not a lot of transformation in between. It can be too sudden and therefore ring false. Hopefully incorporating some subtle change in emotion and action along the way will fix this!

    Happy to be a nag.
