I've been poking at figuring out the storyform for my series, which is a lot harder than book 1 because so far I don't know much about the series!
Anyway say you have an MC Growth of Stop, and an MC Issue of Self Interest. Is it still okay to picture the MC as "not having enough Self Interest"? Or does the Growth of Stop indicate that there is too much Self Interest in the picture? (this would be for an MC Resolve of Change BTW)
It might sound like Morality should be the Issue, but for some reason Self Interest feels more accurate to me. It's more like she lacks self-interest than is overly altruistic, if that makes sense. For instance, it's not like she goes out of her way to sacrifice herself, but she can't stand it when other people put themselves at risk for her, and tries to stop them from doing so even when she sorely needs their help.
But I'm wondering if all this is an indication the Growth should be Start?
This stage of storyforming is kind of neat, it's like you're probing your muse or something!
