Happy Friday from Gail Gaymer Martin
Each post from me these past weeks has been focused on Tension and Conflict. Today you’ll hear about ways to create tension
Earlier I described the difference between conflict and tension. Conflict is the action of two opposing forces. It is the butting of heads between ideas, needs, desires and wants, or it can be a single individual wanting two opposing things. What makes conflict important is the tension it creates. Tension creates the emotional response to the conflict. Without it, the conflict would not have much impact on the reader.
