3T Writing Tidbit

What's the deal with Goal, Motivation and Conflict?

I've seen these around and thought I knew what they were. Turns out like most things writerly, there's a lot of iceberg under the water's surface. Read Debra Dixon's book GMC. You'll see what I mean.

But the tip of the berg is something I've heard often, in many forms. Even alone, it bears repeating.

Your central character must have a
STRONG, SPECIFIC WANT that drives the plot/drives the action and a
DESPERATE NEED, usually unknown to them, that resolves the plot.

Published since 2009, over the years I've accumulated various items of writing wisdom. The Third Tuesday Writing Tidbit showcases these items in no particular order. Click here to see all 3T Tidbits.

You work hard to make the holidays passionate...

Mood enhancing Passion Bites releases today! Romance, incredible sex, adventure and so many feels...get your copy today! And remember the multi-author 12 Days of 99c Sales at Treat Yourself Right this Holidays! $50 egiftcard grand prize.

Passion Bites
A broken vampire and a driven doctor, seized by a passion neither can afford.

Dr. Alexis Byornsson has her hands full in the ER when her patient’s uncle blows into the exam room. Stitching up a five-year-old’s cut is hard enough without a blond god distracting her all to hell.

To say she’s furious is putting it mildly—not that anyone would notice. Not with the legendary control that’s earned her the nickname “Dr. Frozen”.

Luke Steel never knew a woman chastising him could be so sexy. But for the first time in three hundred years, passion stirs in his gut—along with panic. Since his wife was taken before his eyes in a brutal attack, he’s sworn he’d never feel that powerless again.

Almost before either Luke or Alexis realize what’s happening, they’re sharing a blazing kiss that shatters her logical armor and unleashes his wholly unwanted mating instinct. And spurs a closer-than-skin enemy to put into motion a devastating plan for revenge.

Warning: This book contains a hot doctor and a hotter vampire messing up sterile surfaces. The usual rogue shenanigans, but this time covering deeper motives. Hang on to your stethoscopes at what’s revealed!
