Conflict

Conflict refers to the obstacles, challenges, or opposition your MC encounters in pursuing her Desire. Because she has a Desire, it is a given that a Conflict is currently preventing her from obtaining it.

The plot of your story is based on how the MC resolves the Conflicts that prevent her from obtaining her Desire. As she works to overcome these obstacles, she obtains abilities and her character evolves and grows.

Let’s examine the Conflicts that can potentially arise between each of the variables we have presented. We will start with the last variable Results and then continue exploring the variables we have introduced in reverse order.
