I’m trying to find the PROBLEM and SOLUTION elements for my MC.
The story is about a boy whose father died and now is grieving and has trouble with continuing with living.
At the end of the story he accepts the death of his father, has good memories too him, and accepts life again as something worthwhile.
He ends his grieving.
I placed the MC in TL of Fixed Attitude and the CONCERN is Contemplation/Conscious.
On an ISSUE level, I’m doubting between APPRAISAL and RE-APPRAISAL.
Q1: How to read it at this level?
Q2: Is his problem the APPRAISAL of life when you know it ends in death?
Q3: Is his solution the RE-APPRAISAL of life when you know it ends in death but enjoy it while you can?
Q4: Or should I not look at this level?
If the Q4 answer is “yes, don’t look at this level” then RE-APPRAISAL has ACCEPTANCE and NON-ACCEPTANCE (or REJECTION in NF terms)
That resonates with me.
Q5: What is then the PROBLEM and what is the SOLUTION?
It is a changed character.
Q6: So is then ACCEPTANCE the SOLUTION?
Q7: And NON-ACCEPTANCE/REJECTION the PROBLEM?
Q8: As he is at the start of the story rejection life as it hurts to lose someone.
