Hey gang, I just gave my new member introduction and now have my first question: I can write and keep the flow going with generally not too much problem. But after resting that, I come back to review it. Then do some of the prep work getting to know my characters from the inside out and often from then, get stuck in my head; what is their external and internal conflict/motivation/goal. The borders between all of that become blurry. For instance This is for a short story I've written and am beating it out to then adapt it into screenplay. I feel that this little bit of simple character research I've done has confused me.... Does it make sense? I feel I'm confusing myself between goal/motivation and conflict when articulating them?! Argh... Any thoughts will be kindly appreciate and I look forward to reading and talking further on all things Written!
