Obstructions vs Wants

Write a scene where one character wants something and have another character represent the obstruction to that want. Make the want anything, examples of which might include love, a penny, a sister, a shirt , a job, sex, marriage, financial success, a spoon. You can try to resolve the scene or leave it unresolved so you can add to it later. Be overt about the need or be subtle about it. Make sure you use visual and sense-based details, including dialogue to reveal the conflict. (Dr. Greg Oaks)

Good writing and have fun while you learn!

Characters in Conflict

Make sue to include dialogue and details of setting. Use small paragraphs and have a new paragraph each time there is a new speaker. (Dr. Greg Oaks)
