Last Tutorial - Character Development and Conflict
In the tutorial this week, some important issues were higlighted in regards to character development and conflicts; these included there not being a convincing enough or proper conflict for the chaarcters and that these conflicts should be a really big issue for each character which in turn would be more difficult to overcome.
Questions that needed to be asked were whether the character development was realistic enough, what the catalyst would be and why would they overcome them now, at this point in time and place?
Sam manages to get over his conflict a bit too easily compared to what he should do.
With this in mind for the final draft I am going to go back and really explore my three main characters more, getting to know them thoroughly.
I also think it may be best not to resolved all three characters conflicts in the Delta, but to rather resolve one and have the others on the way to resolution, a step in the right direction.
