The MC growth spurt
Has your MC grown lately?
I'm not talking about wastelines, or height. Unless of course, that's an essential part of your plot!
No, I'm talking about Oprah-style internal growth.
Become less selfish? Braver? Learned to see their own self-worth?

When you sprinkle some Miracle-(character)-Grow on your MC, what's happened to them?
