Looking for storyforms that fits some stories I run into the question.
What is the right story goal for classic crime stories?
There is a corpse in a living room in the very first scene (or a little bit later) and than a brilliant detective enters the scene.
What it is. Activity/Physics seems like the right choice. Now time for story goal.
Obtaining? Learning? Both seems to have some meaning.
What may be interesting, in case of Obtaining, the consequence is Changing One’s Nature. In case of Learning the consequence is Conceiving an Idea.
For me it may be something like:
Obtaining is for stories where we know who is a villain and we need to catch him.
Learning is for stories where we need to find out who’s the villain.
And to be honest, I have next to no idea on what would be the Conceiving an Idea kind of consequence in this case…
I’ll be thankful for sharing some ideas. Especially if it helps to untie this knot in my mind
