From Fiction University: I'm currently taking a blogging/writing break during the month of September to deal with family health issues. There will be no new posts until October. But please feel free to read through the archives for posts you might have missed. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Core Conflict

The core conflict is the main problem or goal the protagonist is trying to resolve in the novel. Resolving this conflict is the climax and end of the novel. If this conflict didn't exist, there would be no novel.
