7. CONFLICT

“A writer’s job is to give his readers pleasure … through stress, strain and tension.”
―Sol Stein

Usually, we combine internal and external conflicts for a richer story. That means we have to understand how our characters approach and resolve conflict.
— Jami Gold

Desire is the crucible that forges character because it intrinsically creates conflict.
— Kristen Lamb

When you force the character to do something in the story that is in direct conflict with a core value, or have two core values (or two sides of the same core value) clash, you ramp up your story’s suspense and give your writing an underlying, subtle, but strong tension beneath the surface.
— Kathy Steffen
