Come connect with other readers and enjoy conversing and thinking about great books! Element of Focus - Resolution Last week, we discussed the conflict of the story. This week, we will discuss the sibling of conflict: resolution. The resolution of a story is when the main conflicts are worked out and typically, the character has grown in some sort of way. Resolution is kind of the exhale moment of the story when everything works out. Come ready to discuss the resolution of your book or a book that you have read!
