Writing a relationship between characters into a strong plot, requires understanding the principles of plot . . . and how to apply them to a relationship journey.
So far, we have covered the four basic types of relationship arcs.
How the primary principles of plot apply to relationships (goals, antagonists, conflict, and consequences).
And how the secondary principles of plot apply to them (progress, setbacks, costs, and turning points).
Today we will finish up with that by going over the tertiary principles: plans, gaps, and crises.
I’ve already covered these topics in depth for plot in general. In this series, I’m specifically applying them to relationships. So, if you need more explanation on any of them, please see . . .

The Secondary Principles of Plot: Progress, Setbacks, Costs, Turning Points

With that said, let’s jump in!
