Heroine's Journey worksheet

Make your character's story arc resonate more emotionally with readers.
Often, a male and female character will respond differently to conflict in a story because culture and time period will affect a character differently due to gender. As a result, their internal story arcs will differ according to gender, also.
If readers comment that there's something disatisfying with a character's story arc, the Heroine's Journey applied to a heroine will often make her story more psychologically resonant and satisfying for a reader.

Your readers identify and/or empathize with your characters, and that’s what keeps them on the edge of their seats, wanting to know what happens next to your characters. When your reader is apathetic about your character, they are more likely to put your book down. They simply aren’t as invested in the character and are not as interested in the conflict surrounding them.
This worksheet will guide you through several steps and questions that will help you delve deeper into your characters to make them realistic, heroic, and memorable.
