"Think It'll Last? -- Conflict Resolution in Fictional Relationships"

Ever read a book with characters you love, only to finish the last page with a sense of disappointment? The author may have gotten stuck in helping her characters solve their relationship problems. Making a book a "keeper" that is read and re-read over the years is your goal. You want to write a book that makes not only the reader think about your characters' future life together, but editors as well. Producing a powerfully satisfying ending to your book means you have to have a strong, identifiable conflict between the characters--and you have to have your characters need to create this outcome. Resolution that is believable and satisfying to both characters can be a challenge for writers.

This topic has interest for beginners, with a spill-over to intermediate and advanced writers who want to punch up the core relationships in their work. Finding a way to convey the deeply satisfying book with believable characters who resolve their conflicts is tricky. Conflict resolution is at the core of every fictional work. We writers throw our characters into horrifying situations and we need to be able to give our heroes and heroines the tools to resolve their problems.

Hope to see you there!

Come to the meeting prepared to have a good time!
