I found this thing: http://kittyspace.org/leviathan0.html and I’m gonna play with it because I’m finding it instructional!
4. STUDY YOUR CONFLICT
The conflict in Into Lannamer is three-tiered.
Primary is the conflict between Rin & Girey: She wants to save his life; he wants to return to freedom in the south.
Secondarily is the conflict between Rin/Girey and everyone who wants to stop them from going somewhere – or anywhere.
On the same level as this but separate is the weather. They leave the south in the middle of the rainy season and will end up in the north in the cold season. The weather’s going to be an issue.
This conflict comes about because the two nations have been at war longer than there have been nations, because Girey is very full of himself, because Rin is very bad at explaining herself and not interested in negotiation, because they both have meaning to their respective people & enemies beyond the meaning they have to themselves. Rin wants a project; Girey just wants to go home, even if home doesn’t exist anymore.
“5. OUTLINE YOUR STORY
No, seriously. Outline your story.”
Okay. 🙂 /goes off to do that/
