“The Ego is not a master in its own house.” –Sigmund Freud
What forces impact your characters decision making process? What are the character’s internal needs/drive? What moral guidelines does your protagonist have, and where have they come from? What are the real world challenges that confront your protagonist? Write about the internal dialogue your character has with each of these aspects and how s/he is able to negotiate with each one to come to a decision.
