Constant Contained Conflict (CCC) – The Holidays are a perfect example

The 3by3 Writing Method looks for CCC in every scene and every character. Forcing a group of diverse people with the only thing in common being they are related is a perfect example of CCC. Internal and interpersonal conflicts abound during the holidays.
It might be a good idea to take a few notes during the discussions and events of the season, discretely of course.
The details of these events are not critical unless you are writing specially about the holidays, but internal conflicts and the obvious external ones can be tweaked into believable story lines. The confinement of family, close quarters and the imbibing that occurs during this time offers great fodder for future writings.
Happy Holidays!
