Think of your protagonist’s arc in terms of sacrifice

That’s the teaser for Xander Benet’s  Screenwriting Tip #1089.  I don’t want to quote it here because the tips are so short I’d just be stealing the whole content of that day’s post.  He does a daily tip, and is worth following.  Some of his tips are real zingers for me.  This is one.

 

Seems like that link might not be good anymore. So that I remember, it was something like at the beginning of the story your protagonist is willing to sacrifice nothing, and by the end they are willing to sacrifice anything.
