The basic building blocks of romance fiction are conflicts: internal, external, and romantic. Strong conflicts drive readers to keep reading in order to discover who wins.

No matter how beautiful the writing is, if the conflict isn’t strong enough, the reader will get bored and go read something else. Great conflicts, on the other hand, can turn a book into a bestseller and an author into an autobuy.

New York Times bestselling author Angela Knight explains how she designs conflicts for maximum punch, then uses them to construct a climax that is both unpredictable and powerful. She provides students with worksheets they can use to design their own conflicts, then determine how to resolve them in an emotionally satisfying way.

She will also provide a character creation tool and plotting grid.

Such an amazing class! I learned so much. Great examples of character bios and plot grids. After doing the character bio for my hero and heroine, I better understand who they are and what they want. The instructor spent so much time on this class - not only in preparation but with the time she took to read over work we submitted. I can't recommend this class enough. Truly awesome!
Very useful and practical information presented in a fun and easily understood manner. The teacher was so generous with her time, and I got great feedback on some of my work. This class helped me see a huge hole in my plot before I'd gotten too far into the manuscript. Great class!!
Love the lessons and the examples. Very informative and easy to translate to my own work. Angela is a very hands-on instructor
Wow, what amazing course! It exceeded all my expectations. I learned so much from the lessons and I was beyond grateful for the individual feedback and generous, swift communication. So sad the class is ending...
Thrilled with this class! Angela gave so much information and I'm able to use it right away as I'm working on a first draft. Thank you!
Great information! I learned so much. Always enjoy Angela's classes because she always shares a lot of information, and responds to questions.
