6 Character MotivationMotivation is what drives a character’s actions. It explains behavior and reveals personality.Think back to The Pact and what motivated George to keep working at his goals.Think back to LOTF when the boys are motivated to reenact the hunt.Writers rarely make direct statements about a character’s motivation. Instead they plant clues and rely on readers to make inferences from those clues.
7 Character Motivation INTRINSIC vs. EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION Intrinsic Motivation comes from INSIDE an INDIVIDUAL rather than outside.Extrinsic Motivation is when a person is motivated by some outside force.For example, your parents might EXTRINSICALLY motivate you to improve your grades by rewarding you with a later curfew, a new iPhone, or other privileges.
