A quote from Twitter

On Twitter, you can use the sort feature to create conversations as if in a chatroom.  You do it by creating a "hashmark" to designate a thread.

The hashmark #scriptchat is for folks talking about screenwriting. 

One of the contributions to the discussion was the following, which relates to the question I asked in the comments on the post previous to this one -- the post which is a story to be analyzed.

@zoocityseries posted the following --
 A rule for #scriptchat: a great hero needs an internal conflict.  Fighting the bad guy is not a conflict.  That's an objective.

And that is exactly the reason I asked the author of the story to define the internal conflict of her lead character, the conflict that is resolved at the end of the piece.
