'FESS UP FRIDAY | What Do the Characters Want?

Michelle Paradise wrote, produced and starred in the Logo TV series, "Exes & Ohs". She has a series of video blogs centered around the series, and recently she talked about the writing process behind "Exes & Ohs".

One of the things she talked about was figuring out, "What do the characters want?" - either personally or professionally - and how they go about achieving that. Once you have that figured out, the story falls into place.

Which is sort of my problem right now.

I don't actually know what my characters want. In fact, right now the two lead characters are at a crossroad romantically and professionally. I don't quite know how to proceed.

Yeah, this 'Fess Up is LATE.
