This question is in reference to this story. A reviewer made a good point that my MC seems inconsistent throughout the story. I realized that this is because the character is unclear about his own motivation or identity in the story. Motivation is what keeps the reader interested in a character, but what do you do with a character who is defined by his ambivalence? If your MC is not driven towards a single goal, and held back from progress by conflicting desires, how do make sure that you don't lose the reader? How do you represent a character who is torn? Any ideas would be helpful.
