On Your Character’s Motivation (GMC: Goal, Motivation, and Conflict, The ABCs of Writing) by Tinthia Clemant
Welcome to Tinthia Clemant’s second post in her three-part series on Goal, Motivation, and Conflict — The ABCs of Writing. This one focuses on your character’s motivation.

“Trevor’s only wanted to raise her girls and fight for her community nursing program. She didn’t have time to be distracted by the hot fireman she burned years ago by refusing his marriage proposal. If she could just remind herself of her desires each day, it wouldn’t be so hard working closely with him to help his father recover from a stroke.” Take Harte a novel by Carol Malone.
