Story Structure: Examples of “Bad” as the Judgment

Bad as the Judgment — The Main Character does not resolve its personal problems. For example, a woman who has succeeded in earning the job of company president finds that it is an unfulfilling achievement and that she still wants more; a retired gunfighter finds that returning to his old profession wakes up all the old demons that he thought he’d overcome; a father sees that placing his career before his family has left him bitter and alone by the time his children grow up; etc.
