        I don’t think the stakes are high enough to keep her compliant on a long term basis. Plus, as his mistress she would have many opportunities to kill him.

        In ‘Blue Velvet’, a deranged extortionist (Dennis Hopper) kidnaps a child in order to force the drug-addicted mother to become his mistress. Obviously, for the mother to submit she must be convinced this guy would have no qualms about killing a child.

          INTENTION: to blackmail a woman into becoming his mistress.

          OBSTACLE: ?

          I think this might work better from the woman’s angle. Let’s try it out…

          INTENTION: get clean? get her life back together?

          OBSTACLE: her drug habit – which is ruining her life in more ways than one.

          A woman trying to get life back together is blackmailed into sex by a man who threatens to inform her shelter and care program about her secret drug habit.

          I dunno…

          What do you think is the obstacle from the man’s angle? What’s standing in his way? 

          Intention and obstacle both need to be strong and specific.
