Fill your story with quality conflicts


  1. Define the challenges and obstacles that stand in your character's way. 
  2. Identify who will win the conflict.  
    Create a situation in which two opposing forces battle with one another. It can be a physical fight between the characters or some internal conflict like having two opposite beliefs and attitudes. Put them in a situation where they can lose something they deeply care about.
  3. Create large, real stakes. 
    Put the character in a highly conflicting situation where they have to make a stake, or they could lose something very valuable and end up entirely emotionally broken. For example, they can lose the love of their life and end up lonely.
  4. Make constructive changes. 
    Create a powerful, devastating conflict that will expose the character's deepest emotional workings and ultimately lead them to constructive change.
