What is the journey your MC needs to take to obtain her desire? In the Servant Story Therapy, we often refer to the story journey as a Process because it helps us as writers visualize the journey as a daily step-by-step plan that your MC undertakes to resolve her conflicts and ultimately achieve her Desire.
It encompasses the series of events, challenges, and transformations that she experiences throughout the narrative. The Process includes your MC’s actions and decisions as she navigates through obstacles, overcomes hurdles, and works toward the resolution of her conflicts.
We can visualize the Process variable by referring to our diagram again. The current position, circumstances, conflicts, or results of your MC at the beginning of your story is Point A. Point B represents her Desire. In between Point A and Point B is a line that connects them. This is your MC’s Process. It is the storyline or the journey she must take to obtain her Desire.
By mapping out the Process, you create a narrative structure that provides a sense of direction and progression for your story. It serves as a roadmap for your MC’s development and allows readers or viewers to engage with her journey as she moves closer to her Desire.
