Interesting. The Great Gatsby came into my head. Within this formula, it seems Gatsby is the antagonist (who provides conflict) and The Status Quo is the "hero*" trying to restore the original order to society that was disrupted by Gatsby climbing to a different class and loving the wrong person.

*Anti-hero, really, since this is a tragedy.

Anywho, this probably could be adapted into one of the customized templates..?

Thanks for the post. I think, though that what you are talking about is the question of what makes up a story, while this program deals with how to develop it and how to structure it.

The two are linked, but if a writer does not understand what a story must contain, i.e., (in simple terms) a problem that must be solved, and the solving of the problem involves conflict and resolution, then they will never be able to use this software.

Bottom line is that you can't write a story without both.

I don't want to lead anyone astray with my conjecture over whether or not problems arising in the structure of a story are indeed related to the structure of the story - which, as you say, is ironed into this program.

So I removed it.

Thanks for the observation Michael.
