There are many kinds of conflict. Think about the conflict you are writing. Can you add another dimension to it? It seems to me that internal conflict (Person Against Self) is the most interesting form of conflict.

1. Person Against Self
· Example Tom Sawyer, Surfacing (Atwood)

2. Person Against Person
· Example: Bugs Bunny vs. Yosemite Sam, Batman and the Joker.

3. Person Against Society
· Example: The Scarlet Letter (Puritan Society), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Mental Hospitals, Society)

4. Person Against Nature
· Example: Alone – Stranded at sea.
