I've been on a blogging break until now and missed everyone's A-Z posts, but I love the question you pose here. It's so key to figuring out where our plots lead.

One character's "treasure" could be something purely sentimental or extremely monetarily valuable. It's also a great motivator for the character to keep it safe…and for the antagonist to seize and/or destroy it.

I like the question about what the main character treasures the most, I think I have that down but need to think more about it with my WIP. Also love the word thrimble! :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks for stopping by, Barbara. I think it is a key question to understanding plot. :)

Great cast of characters and weapons. Loved the instrument name, Thrimble.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Yes, that's very true. A character's treasure doesn't even have to be something physically tangible, it could be the sense of family or belonging, or something along those lines. And yes, treasure is always a good motivator for the protagonist and the antagonist. :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

I think you have that down too. :) And thanks!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks, C. Lee!!

My main character treasures her freedom. The T Glossary for your Champion Trilogy is awesome. I am super eager to read the book now.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Easy - Byron treasures privacy!

M Pax said...

Ooo, treasure. I realized after reading Save the Cat, that all my stories are treasure quests. I never realized I was so into that type of story until then. :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

I think that's something that many of us treasure, Rachna - great choice for your character! And thanks!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Exactly! And it's a driving force in your first book!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Me too! Except I think I knew it already . . . Voyage of Dawn Treader, The Hobbit, and other book like that were my mainstay as a kid.

The "treasure" in my world is my female MC. She's considered to hold the key to a cure for a horrible disease in her genes, so everyone's after her!

Geez, fantastic T words in your novel. I totally heart Theran, Tessa, & Tamara! Okay, wait. I like them all.

What does my main character treasure most? Hmm... I'll go with my current MG. I'd say her friendship with her best friend, Fleishman.
