We all know conflict is the key to a great story. But how do you avoid the contrive plot or the weak conflict that could be cleared up with one discussion between your characters? This workshop will focus on setting up your characters so you have strong conflict right from the beginning of the story. We’ll cover not just your main characters, but conflict for every character, increasing the conflict so you have rising tension, and building conflict into every scene. We’ll go over how to do this with goals, strong motivations, and with core needs for every character so you’re never left with a sagging middle or weak tension again.
This is a four week workshop with writing exercises.
