"Strong story needs accelerating conflict." I never thought of that really...Thanks for your Friday round-up Susan!
Hi Marja -You're welcome.Yes, we're told to get the characters in as much trouble as possible. :)Blessings,Susan
That has always been a problem of mine. I don't like conflict and nasty stuff and it's hard to put my characters through it. Oh, well, take that - it's good for the story. You gotta do what you gotta do.
Thanks for the link, Susan! I will check it out. I have good reason to, you know. :) Blessings,Karen
Hi Nancy -Most of the books we read, even romances, have a strong dose of conflict. They mirror real-life situations.Blessings,Susan :)
Hi Karen -LOL! Yes, one of our characters is stirring up quite a lot of conflict. Talk to you soon.Blessings,Susan :)
ANYTHING with but 3 steps has my vote! And any life, or story without conflict is downright dull (though there are days I'd prefer NO conflicts).Blessings,Kathleen
Hi Sassy -I agree. A novel without conflict brings out the yawns.Everyone knows I'm a SOTP writer, but I've learned to combine some plotting with my free-wheeling ways. :)Blessings,Susan
