ABSTRACT

This study is a follow-up of a preceding study that proposed the ‘path-goal’ that could be utilized in creative writing and the methods for differentiating the story and switching the genre accordingly, which would propose a method for concretizing the setting in the ‘path-goal.’ To do so, this study proposed a method for reconstructing the character’s personality to utilize it in choosing incidents and conflicts, elements and method for converting a simple story and a method for constructing the reversal of the narrative through misunderstanding and concealment according to the goal and the amount of information. First, this study redefined the character’s personality as a coordinate value in the coordinates with the recognition of the world and the speed of response to it as the axis. Then, this study explained that the character’s personality or change could be constructed according to the initial value of the coordinate and that incidents and conflicts could be constructed according to the symmetry of the left and right and the top and bottom of the coordinate values, and the diagonal or vice versa. In addition, this study provided a method for constructing a three-dimensional narrative by proposing the internal and external situational elements by which a story could welcome a turning point. Lastly, this study drew out a measure for constructing the reversal of the narrative. This study categorized the reversal into three, found each of them related to the differences in the amount of information in the writer, the character, and the audience and the character’s misunderstanding and concealment of the goal and proposed a method for constructing a reversal narrative, focusing on that. Ultimately, this study has significance in that it came up with methods for connecting and categorizing elements in the narrative to propose a creative writing method.
