Eric M Witchery on agendas …

“…at any given moment in a story, every character is working
on at least three agendas—three levels of desire: An overall agenda,
which tends to consist of broad hopes—life goals. A scene agenda,
which is the result a character hopes to achieve in a scene. A
compulsive agenda, which is a deeper, hidden need.”

-Eric M. Witchey in an article in The Writer, September 2007
