What would YW camp be without drama? Boring. What would a novel be without conflict? Just as blah.
I recently spent five unforgettable days at YW camp. Imagine, no girls worrying about social status, no backbiting, everyone happy with the cabin and the girls they were assigned to, and no one getting homesick. Heaven, huh? Well, that wasn't our cabin.
Honestly, the girls were wonderful for the most part, but we had our moments of drama. Can you imagine a novel about girls' camp with NO drama or conflict? It would never be published.
Conflict creates memories, a good story, and lots to laugh about later. (Crisis + time=humor.) It also gives us a standard of measurement to gage the girls’ growth and maturity in years to come.
Opposition in all things—drama at girls’ camp. I sure love my girls.In a good novel, conflict is the driving force. Without it, there is no story.
