Results are the incremental changes in your MC’s Desire Obtainment/Conflict Resolution journey. These Results can include both Success Results and Failure Results, indicating the progress or lack thereof in achieving her Desire.

The plot can be divided into sections marked by these Incremental Results, which may initially involve failures (regression) and gradually transition into successes (progression).

It’s important to have described variables such as your MC’s circumstances, abilities, resources, characteristics, attitude, relationships, Processes, Effects, and Desires at Point A, which becomes your baseline reading of her Results. It is a description and measurement of her Results at the beginning of the story. At each plot point forward or backward, we describe the changes to one or more of these variables in a measurable way as the story unfolds.
