While tucking in our ten-year-old daughter last night she was quieter than normal. After kissing goodnight she looked me straight in my face and asked, ?Does character require conflict?? In my silence she reached up and hugged my neck saying, ?I think so.?
I feel I'm of reasonable intelligence with more than a fair amount of the life experience, but she asked me a seemingly simple question which I didn?t have a satisfactory answer. I am obviously not smarter than a fifth grader?at least this one.
What do you all feel, does having character require conflict?
