13.18: Naturally Revealing Character Motivation
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary, Dan, and Howard
What motivates us? What really motivates us? Why? (Note: our motivations are probably not in service of some overarching plot.) How can we use this information to believably motivate characters?
Credits: This episode was recorded by Dan Thompson, and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Take a character motivation and express it via free indirect speech. Now take something that has been expressed via free indirect speech and unpack it into the narrative.
