To stand out in an ever more crowded marketplace, authors need to create believable, memorable characters without falling into the trap of using stereotypes.
They should be able to develop a character through the course of the story, and understand how physical/emotional attributes can help set up a character readers will never forget.
A Sparkling Guide to Gripping Goal, Motivation & Conflict
(Because everyone needs a little excitement!)
Do you ever wonder why Cruella de Vil wanted all those Dalmatians? Because, Dalmatians! Much cute, many cuddles! Yes, yes we know it was for a fur coat. But why? What drove her to her obsessive compulsiveness, eh? She didn’t just wake up one day and decide she wanted lots of different furs (or maybe she did – some people roll that way).
The point is, while we know her goal: Dalmatian coat, what was her motivation? How was the conflict resolved? How would it have been resolved if you’d been telling the story? Goal, Motivation, Conflict (GMC), you know that’s where I was going and if you didn’t, you also need to do this workshop!
New writers – understand what the heck Goal, Motivation and Conflict is. Seasoned writers, (mmm tasty!) we’ll look at how you can use GMC just about anywhere to enhance those epic skills you’ve worked hard to acquire. There will be cookies… er, anyone bake?
Are you a VIP yet?
