  1. Found you!

    There’s conflict and there’s conflict. Too much thriller level conflict can be nerve racking and sometimes I have to walk away from a read until I’ve had a chance to settle down. The other big issue is the kind of internal conflict that crosses the line into excessive emotion. My goal as a writer is to craft a balance between character and action.

  2. YAY!! You found us! So glad!!
    That is a good point. There’s conflict for the characters and also conflict for a reader, no? Like I said, too much conflict to me is harder to get through than too little. It is a balancing act no doubt. But once we find it, man it’s golden!
