on dramatic and comedic characters

Poking around for storytelling insights to (hopefully!) help my '17 FKFicFest story come out as my recipient might like, this aphorism particularly struck me:

"Dramatic characters are driven mainly by what they want. Comic characters are driven mainly by what they don't want."
— attributed to a Tom Schlesinger, who leads writing workshops

Just thought I'd share. :-) Good luck to everyone imagining, writing, editing!
