Bildungsroman

Bildungsroman

by Adam Huddleston

 

Wow. Some word, huh?

It may sound complicated, but “bildungsroman” is simply a method of storytelling in which the protagonist goes through a profound physical, mental, and/or emotional change during the story. This is the quintessential usage of a character arc. The techniques used to accomplish an effective arc are too numerous to mention in one blog. I just wanted to introduce you, the faithful blog reader, to the term.

Happy writing!
