Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

Now is the time to begin formulating your complete story. To get the story going with energy, start writing at the climax of the story.
  • What is the conflict between the characters? A conflict can also be between a character and themselves, or between a person and nature. Let's make this one person to person.
  • How does this conflict grow?
  • How does it finally “explode” between the characters?
Try to write about something unexpected happening.
  • What would throw your reader off and surprise them?
  • What would surprise and/or shock your characters?
Start at the climax, or where the conflict comes to a breaking point, and work out from there. You can go back and add background information in the sixth and final section of this workshop.
