Writing Motives and Contradictions
Fictional characters are human beings with fickle natures. Mercurial personalities revolve from desire, fear, love, spite, pride, and guilt, to name a few.
Explore motives, contradictions and consequences of thoughts and actions. When planning plot investigate the extent to which a character feels the nature and source of suffering. What's uniqiue about existence in this entanglement of pleasure and pain?
How does each individual cope with the suffering? How does the character think about what is lacking? What does he thinks he wants? How will she set about getting it? Discover the variety of ways.
Creative Write: Investigate a world view or moral view that has troubled you. Begin by writing about a moment of concern for a persona created from your perspective.
