Creating Character Conflicts

Develop a character’s personal struggle and how it will create tension in your story.

A compelling drama story is usually driven by characters and their conflicts. Write about a character’s inner conflict (e.g., guilt over a past mistake, grappling with personal identity) or external conflict (e.g., challenging authority, fighting societal norms). Explore how this conflict affects their life and the various ways they confront these difficulties. This prompt encourages you to delve deep into your character’s frustrations, hopes, and fears and how these elements affect their actions.
