A FRAMEWORK


for character-driven story development


The Framework is based on the idea, that each story needs a corresponding character, that character equals story, and thus each different genre needs a specific character with specific qualities. The Framework provides a tool, a grid, a theory on why certain genres need certain characters, and an explanation on why certain characters act like they do.

The Framework defines 16 specific plot genres, and explains where they come from.
It explains how our motivations are based on our fears, and how every internal NEED generates a corresponding WANT in the external world, and thus a story. 
It explains character change, why it occurs, and why it doesn't in certain genres. 
It shows how our perception defines who we are and what stories we tell.

A tool to better understand the stories, we tell. A wider approach on storytelling.
