We’re looking at my wife Linzi’s favourite topic today, conflict.
You don’t have to end up in a fight to be engaged in conflict. If your life contained no conflict at all it would actually be fairly dull. Same goes for your stories.
Things to do
The task today is to identify at least one place in your story where you can enhance or improve the conflict, using one of the three conflict types.
- Your second draft
- One point where you have intensified intrigue or suspense
- One point where you have made use of conflict (any type)
As always, email your editing work to Rob (firstname.lastname@example.org) for feedback.
