What is conflict?
Dwight Swain described conflict as "two dogs fighting for the same bone".
I have a love hate relationship with conflict. I hate making my characters suffer but I love when the story is interesting enough that the reader will keep reading the book.
There are three kinds of conflict.
Man against man: Example all the Indiana Jones movies
Man against nature: Example the movie, The Perfect Storm
Man against self: Example the movie, Spiderman 3
Try to figure out other movies or books that have one of these three forms of conflict. Be sure and share your ideas here.
