Know Thyself: Abstract Plots

Another problem I have is that I tend to conjure up, as a first effort, characters with abstract needs or needs readers do not naturally relate to, e.g. strong devotions to principle or needs to grow.  (This may have something to do with my awkward social life.)

Knowing that I have this tendency, I focus hard in early pre-writing stages on getting concrete plots for all my characters.
