I have seen in a lot and a lot stories, especially in romance genre that there isn’t actually any conflict or a goal.
A story plot has to have three things:
A protagonist: Around whom the story revolves.
A goal: This is what the protagonist needs to achieve throughout the story.
A conflict: This is the challenge protagonist needs to overcome in order to achieve their goal.
In most stories, there is a protagonist. She wakes up, goes to school, meets a love interest. She starts falling for him. They meet everyday and blah blah blah blah. I’m the end they get married and I am like, this is all good. But where is the conflict? What was the goal?
Nothing. Nope. Nada. And I am like ‘Whaaaa…?’
Like the whole story is okay, it’s well directed and everything. It has a main character but why is she the main character?
What are your opinions on this?
