quick story guide

Postby trevor » Sep 26, 2009 1:52 am

Just trying to clarify my mind here.
In the quick story guide, plot dynamics intro it says 'Choose the outcome and judgement by thinking about whether the story goal will be achieved or the story problem resolved, not about whether the main character does or does not resolve their personal problem by the end.'
Now, I understand the part about the outcome tying in with the overall story, but I always thought the judgement was tied into the MC throughline. In other words if the MC resolved their angst and arrived at the solution in their throughline the judgement would be seen to be good.
Should the sentence in the guide be clarified? Or an I wrong in my understanding?

Cheers,
Trevor

Your understanding is correct. The sentence in the StoryGuide should be revised.
