Using backstory to create internal conflict in the transformational character arc
lol, I seriously remember putting someone to sleep--okay, a "lot" of someones to sleep with these titles. Their eyes would glaze over, and they'd start to twitch like all they really wanted was to run away screaming. This is a little bit more about point A. Or where the transformational arc starts. Point A doesn't just control how the arc is shown and what needs to happen; it also controls internal conflict, which is the push and pull of need (subconscious motivation) and want (conscious motivation).
