1/ Hey #amwriting #writercommunity #5amwritersclub I was doing a little budgeting this morning and thinking about the coming year, and I am struggling here on what is appropriate / necessary to spend on writing. I'm not talking time, I'm talking cold hard cash.
2/ Over the past seven years I've spent money or a wide variety of writing related things; conferences, classes, podcasts (pateron), contest submissions, books (of course), travel for writers groups, editing, art for book covers, etc etc.
3/ In 2019 I've spent a few grand (not going to be specific, but more than $1k and less than $5k) and over the last seven years I've likely spent close to $20k+ (I didn't always keep detailed records on this). That is a lot of money spent on learning and networking.

THREAD: The line of character and arc and theme. Or: How do I make this character matter in this world I've created? #WritingCommunity #writerscommunity #ontheporch #amwriting #amediting #writercommunity #manycommunities
Let's start with some definitions.

"Character" - your main character, but could also be a secondary one.
"Arc" - the journey the character takes - emotional, physical, mental ... going from a starting state to a changed state at story's end
Theme - the takeaway for the reader
Ideally what we're creating is a character whose arc affects them and gives the reader multiple things to take away that can be (with some obvious modification) applied to their own life.

But how?
