Conflict is key to writing great stories. And while writers may categorize conflict differently, I categorize conflict into eight types:
Person vs. Self
Person vs. Person
Person vs. Nature
Person vs. Society
Person vs. God
Person vs. Fate
Person vs. the Supernatural
Person vs. Technology
In today’s modern times, the Person vs. God conflict often gets left off lists or is combined with or even replaced by the Person vs. Fate conflict. But because fate conflicts don’t necessarily have gods, and god conflicts don’t necessarily include fate, I put them in separate categories.
Out of all the conflict types, Person vs. Fate is often the most misunderstood.
