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.
Lessons include:
  • Introduction: The importance of Conflict
  • What is Conflict?
  • The Three forms of Conflict in Romance

This classes deepened my knowledge of the elements necessary for a great novel. Some of the writing craft information I was familiar with from other RWA member classes, but the number of conflicts to include, where, with who,when and how were quite useful. The samples and templates included were also priceless.
