This week’s prompt focuses on an exercise designed to work on a particular skill or technique, such as a POV exercise or character builder. Today’s skill: Conflict.
Conflict is often based on anger—two sides battling it out. Bad guy vs. Good guy. But conflict also comes when two side disagree on the best way to accomplish a task or achieve a goal. Best friends can find themselves in conflict over something and never get mad.
Write a scene in which two (or more) people disagree, but aren’t angry or upset at each other.
This will help you to think about the lighter side of conflict, and help you craft scenes with multiple ideas for solving a problem. Not only with this add unpredictability to your novels, it’ll give you additional plotting options.
