5.1.2 Revisit your journal
Look back through characters you have developed in your journal. You may have already thought of flaws and conflicts for your characters.
Find one or more characters now and give these characters a dilemma or a conflict. Does this give more of a story centred on these characters?
Remember that conflicts in this context don’t have to be monumental – they don’t have to be wars, murders, deaths and betrayals (though they might be). They can be relatively domestic matters, but in the context of a particular character’s life they can take on monumental proportions.
