Episode 178: Of Course, This Means War - Narrative Conflict in Speculative Fiction

 

Most of us would prefer a quiet life with little in the way of quarrels, fights and arguments. While it might be desirable in real life, this is the complete opposite of what your novel should be like! Narrative conflict drives the plot and keeps the reader or viewer interested. But what exactly do we mean by narrative conflict? This week Jules and Madeleine discuss how you can introduce conflict into your work as well as looking at the different types of conflict you may wish to include. On the slab this week the Unveiled series, the Harmatia Cycle and many more.
