How to Create Deep Conflict Between Characters, and How to Bridge It (If You Wish)

Want to keep readers engaged? Then consider creating conflict between your characters that runs so deep, it seems impossible to resolve. The kind that starts out as a lovey-dovey conversation between newlyweds on which dishes to use at their housewarming party, and ends with porcelain shards and a shattered marriage. But how do we create that deep conflict? And how do we resolve it, if we wish? By playing around with judgment, values, and gremlins. I hope my experience as a life coach offers a fresh perspective on this topic—if you don’t agree, let’s duke it out.

Angelica Hagman has published more than sixty short stories and non-fiction articles in print magazines. As a life coach, Angelica helps her clients overcome internal and external obstacles, navigate the plot twists of life, and rock their character growth arcs. She's also a book cover designer, which has the added side benefit/disadvantage of generating even more stories for her to write.

Join us on Monday, January 27, for this exciting program. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by a short business meeting at 6:45 p.m. The program will begin at 7 p.m.

Guild members are also invited to take part in a Marketing Support Group which meets at 5:30 p.m. at the same location, in the Harbor Room, across the hall from our usual meeting room. Due to its popularity, we have had to limit the Marketing Support meeting to Guild members.

Visit this page in the future to see what's planned for 2020. If you have suggestions for topics or presenters you would like to see at one of our meetings, contact any of the members of the Board of Directors to let them know.
