Creating Conflict

Originally published on 4 February 2012

This subject came up on one of Reddit’s writing forums. I just wanted to share my answer on here as well.

 Creating conflict is as easy as taking candy from a baby.


‘The baby’ is your comfortable character.

‘The candy’ is his comfort.

The antagonist either takes it away or destroys it

 and the baby has to grow up and get it back.

 It was one of those metaphors that just seemed to make more sense the more that I thought about it.
