Part II: Developing Your Story > Developing Conflict and Resolution

Chapter 7. Developing Conflict and Resolution

Conflict is at the heart of a good story. But the story is not complete without a resolution. In everyday life, conflict can drag on, unacknowledged and undefined, for weeks and months. But in a story, conflict can be expressed, experienced, sorted out, and resolved in five minutes.

The resolution takes place after a turning point. Was there a moment of conflict when you wanted to give up? What was the significant change that led to a resolution? When you are putting together your story, you can dramatize this turning point. Then you can tell how you arrived at the resolution—the happy ending.
