In fiction there are two types of conflict, external and internal.
External conflict is the plot of the story, the mystery or problem the characters must solve by the end of the book.
Internal conflict is a character’s inner struggle, his or her doubts and challenges. In a romance novel, there should be internal conflict, also called relationship conflict, meaning the issues or points of contention that keep the hero and heroine apart.
One of my favorite movies, Raider of the Lost Ark, is an almost perfect example of both external and internal conflict.
