Hi Alicia: In addition to the romance, which to some extent intersects with the external plots, my hero has his external goal and heroine has hers. He is actively involved in preventing her from achieving hers (escaping from his family’s home where he’s acting as her guard) and she is opposed, but not actively trying to prevent his (pleasing his father by marrying the woman who had been his brother’s fiancee). Should analyze their separate goals separately. Should I deal with their emotions about their conflicts related to the separate external goals?
