There is a word which is lying on the tip of my tongue, yet I can't think what it is. The thesaurus isn't helping.
I am writing my work brief for Studio Art, and am trying to say that in creating the best folio I can for personal satisfaction, it has to be something that ____ me to learn (ie. research) about various fashions in previous historical eras.
"____" symbolises a word which is not 'force', because it's through my own desire that I wish to learn. For the same reason, it cannot be compel, drive, pressure, etc- each of them, to me, carries the connotation that it is against my own will, or for a reason other than my own interest that I wish to learn. It is not necessary that I have to investigate on the scale that I wish, but I am leading myself to.
I don't know if that has made any sense, but I really help someone can help me- perhaps the mental block will be lifted, but until that point, there is only frustration. Thanks to anyone who can help...
