Friedrich Nietzsche said, “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” If you’re stuck in your work-in-progress, maybe it’s because you don’t understand your characters’ true motives. In writing we tend to emphasize the “how” things happen but to deepen the story and draw the reader in we need to articulate the more compelling “why?” In this seminar we’ll explore character motives, discuss how we can develop the “why” behind them, and use this to drive the plot. We’ll use excerpts from your work-in-progress for prompts.
