July’s Writing Theme: Create conflict for you character and what they will try as solutions

This month’s theme is Creat conflict for your character and solutions. If you are writing a new story, working on an older project, or revisiting one from years ago… tell about a conflict they are facing and give some solutions they will try.

Write and Describe Character Conflict

My Example: In a story that I am revising and editing right now, my main character is told she will loose all memory of her mate and vice versa. Since she is a private investigator they also give her the task of finding a missing child. Her goal to reunite with her mate and find the missing child.

Some things that she tries are performing the bond with her mate. When the bond takes hold she will know she has a mate to find. Searching for clues (since she is given a case file) to the missing child may possibly lead to her unknown mate.

Another conflict: Everyone around her will forget her relationship with her mate so they will be of no help to her. With limited time lift before losing their memories her and her father work to find a way to let her know to find her mate after the bond had taken place. The only thing is branding her own skin with a few words.

So, what conflicts can you create for you character and what are some of the solutions they try to overcome the conflicts?
