So... What's the problem?


We are now in the main part of our story and we need our hero to face a problem. Your task today is to bullet point the 'problem' part of your story and add it to your story map. What does your character do when they are on their adventure? Are they on a journey? Do they have an encounter with a villain?


 Take your time, this is the main part of the story and the part where it looks like the hero might lose. Let's think about some famous stories. Can you think about what is happening during this part of the story. I will help you out with the first two.
