Your Protagonist Must Fail

Failure is an unfortunate but necessary part of life and the same holds true for your stories. Your protagonist may be awesome, but if you want a more compelling narrative, you may need to have them fail a bit. In Part 1 of this video, I share with you 7 reasons why your protagonist must fail and how it can improve your narrative.

The reasons are:

1. Failure is realistic

2. Failure is relatable

3. Failure is humbling

4. Failure raises the stakes

5. Failure builds tension

6. Failure reinforces the themes

7. Failure Facilitates growth
