I strive for my characters to embody gumption, mainly because I also aspire to gumption. 🙂
- initiative; aggressiveness; resourcefulness: With his gumption he’ll make a success of himself.
- courage; spunk; guts: It takes gumption to quit a high-paying job.
- common sense; shrewdness.
Courage. Spunk. Guts.
Yep, that’s my 2013 resolution!
