There are so many types of conflict - Nature, Self, Society, Other characters who just want things that conflict with what your character wants, so many possibilities for your character to be thwarted, so many challenges to explore.
Here's one of the exercises that Ingrid gave us:
Take the story of the Three Little Pigs, and take the Big Bad Wolf out of it. Now, figure out a new conflict that makes the story still work.
It's a fun challenge!
