Thank you to everyone who came to Jacquie's event on Blending Fact and Fiction to Create Historical Characters with Depth. I'd love to know about conflict in your WIPs: What is your protagonists' internal conflict, relational conflict and external conflict? Also, what major incident shaped your main character and made them the person they are? I highly recommend Jacquie's book – THE FRENCH HOUSE – which you can buy from Fox Lane Books!
Wow! I like the way everyone outlines the three circles of conflict. So, here goes:
At 26, my MC feels quite ready for love but only wants someone who embodies her father's qualities ... internal conflict. She eventually finds love but struggles to fill the gaps her love interest leaves with respect to his strife to scale the hurdles in the way of their happily-ever- after... relational conflict. Of all their hurdles, the highest and widest is the caste system she never knew she belonged to... external conflict.
