An emotional arc is the journey that a character’s emotional state of mind undertakes during a scene. A typical emotional arc has a beginning in which the character is feeling a certain way, an end in which their emotional state of mind has undergone a change, and a turning point that triggers the change.
(The Storymonger)

An emotional arc is a purposeful construct that enables you to take your story to another level, to connect with your readers, to make your story linger far beyond the last page. In this workshop, we’ll drill down into the different facets of your characters’ emotional arc and how it is both the spine (structure) and heart (feelings) of your story.

There was a lot of helpful information, and some of the concepts were presented in a way I hadn't seen before that really opened up some possibilities for me. Very responsive to questions and posts, and a great balance of lecture, discussion, and homework. Loved the class!
