From the theory book:
"Characters represent the different ways the Story Mind can go about solving the story’s problem. The Main Character sits on the Crucial Element, and must either stick with it, if it is the solution, or abandon it if it turns out to be the problem itself."
So however I may assign the other elements, I must give the crucial element to the MC, correct?
What I don't understand is this. I have the following:
MC Issue: Worth
MC Problem: Ending
MC Solution: Unending
MC Symptom: Expectation
MC Response: Determination
MC is Steadfast-Stop
But the crucial element is an Evaluation of Expectation, which is a symptom. The above quoted part of the book implies that the crucial element must be a problem or a solution. So is the theory book wrong, or is Dramatica Pro wrong in telling me that the CE is a symptom, when it should be a problem or solution for the MC??
