Static Plot Points


story points that remain the same throughout an entire story

There are Overall Throughline Story Points, Main Character Story Points, Impact Character Story Points and Relationship Throughline Story Points. There are even story points that are the synthesis of all four points of view such as Goal, Requirements, and Consequences. These central Story Points seem the most plot-like because they affect the Concerns of all four throughlines. As varied as all of these story points are, there is one quality they share: they stay the same from the beginning to the end of a story. Story Points of this stable nature are called Static Story Points.
