  1. As you say, “for a story to work, conflict must be present from the beginning to end.” I like the definition of conflict that follows and good to see it involves some problem to solve given available resources or limitations. This is key to any good writing I think with characters that face challenges and how they respond. That’s the human interest in the story.

    • Greetings Earthling! Ispocklogic… Wishing you a very Happy Holiday season… Thank you for your comment! Yes, conflict is a major factor in any story, whether it’s for the screen or in a book. If the main character doesn’t have challenges, and we don’t see the way they respond and react, there really is no connection to the character, and that’s a problem. 🙂
