One of the keys to a successful children’s story is conflict.
What exactly is that?
Do your characters have to be engaged in a knock down drag out fight?
No, but one of the building blocks of a good story is a struggle of some sort.
Usually, the main character has to be involved in the conflict you develop.
Another word for a conflict is a problem that involves the main character.
Why does it need to be the main character?
Generally, the main character learns something important by solving his/her problem. The main character has to do something which will bring about the result that he/she wants.
Let’s look at some examples so you have a good picture of what I’m trying to convey.
