You will learn about five basic universal needs so you can create your personal ‘needs profile.’ Next, using your Personal Needs Profile, you will craft a writing life support plan designed perfectly for You.

  • Do you work full time?
  • Have an active family life?.
  • Do you want to be more productive?
  • Have you tried the writing process of other writers but failed to stay with it?
  • Do you feel stuck, frustrated trying to balance your ‘real life’ with your ‘writing life’?
  • Did you answered ‘yes’ to two or more of these questions?

Simple Ways to Identify and Increase Character Conflict

  • What is the the role conflict plays in storytelling?
  • How do the five basic universal needs impact internal and external character conflict?
  • Why create a Need-Strength Profile for your main characters?
  • How can you use this information to naturally increase internal and external conflict in your story?

No pre-requisite but a WIP would be helpful.

  • Do you feel overwhelmed with character interviews; the idea of writing ten - twenty page biographies about each of your main characters?
  • Does your mind balk and your fingers freeze on the keyboard at the idea of writing a thirty page outline on the main turning points and main conflict(s) in your story?
  • Do you struggle to find ways to increase realistic internal and external conflict in your characters?
