on Influence Character Signpost

Every Main Character sulks around in the shadows of their own psychology. It is only once the Influence Character arrives and starts poking around at their psyche, that the Main Character finally feels enough motivation to grow and develop into something new. These pokes find themselves labeled the Influence Character Signposts within the Dramatica theory of story. They work act-by-act to push or pull the Main Character into moving into their next stage of development.

Rid yourself of writer's block. Forever.
