'Plot Triangles for Writers' is a writer's tool for developing plot ideas.
Stories are all about the characters’ relationships. Whether they face big, or small events, their relationships drive the action, conflict, and eventually the crises in their lives. While some characters aid the protagonist toward his goals, the antagonist and his allies are dangerous opposition.
In constructing the plot to a compelling story, the author must explore each character and his relationship to the protagonist. But rather than a simple direct one-to-one model for these relationships, we explore the complexities of triangular relationships.
The best know triangular relationship is the 'love triangle' where the protagonist competes for the affections of his lover against a rival. However, each story is constructed with much more than just a Love triangle relationship. Each also contains a Antagonist triangle relationship as well as Mediating relationships that precipitate critical events and crises.
This app explores each of these triangular relationships.
