It’s easy to point to the external factors that keep us from getting what we want — and requires a little more work and self-awareness to recognize the internal ones.

This is true for both real life and fiction, though writing coach Becca Puglisi is only here to advise on the latter, not the former.

Puglisi uses the movie Groundhog Day as an illustrative example of how internal conflict fits into a character’s change arc.

In the post, which is up on C.S. Lakin's Live Write Thrive blog, she also provides advice on how to figure out the character’s inner motivation and thus their inner conflict in her post.
