It’s true! You definitely want a clear idea of the motivation and rough arc (where they begin and where they end) of the central character, protag and antag, but might be best in your case to work on the others as it’s needed, if it’s holding you up!
Yeah. One of my current big issues is “what does this character do” and “what does this character want?” but I think I’m starting from the wrong place, blagh!
