Conflict for the Conflict Averse Writer

Dive Into Writing Lectures

As adults we tend to be conflict averse, which makes it challenging to write conflict on the page. Yet it is the root of drama, and by not understanding conflict, and how to embrace it as we write, we create flat, one-dimensional stories. If your protagonists feel one-dimensional or laking in authentic emotion driven action, then it's time to take a look at how they are in conflict, or even if conflict is missing for your characters and your story.

What You'll Discover:

  • Why conflict is necessary in a story
  • Understanding genre expectations
  • The 5 most common types of story conflict
  • The most common conflict pitfalls
