Dramatica Definition: Subjective Story Direction

Subjective Story Direction • [Element] • The direction of response in the subjective story; the apparent remedy for the symptom of the difficulties between the Main Character and The Obstacle Character • Subjective Characters do the best they can to deal with the Subjective Story Problem, but because the Main and Obstacle Characters are all looking at the problem from their subjective points of view, they can’t get enough distance to actually see the problem right away. Instead they focus on the effects of the problem, which is called the Subjective Story Focus, and choose to follow what they feel will be a remedy, which is called the Subjective Story Direction.
