Dramatic stories are emotional maps that reveal and allow us to track every character's incompleteness as well as their journey to gain wholeness. To be capable of dramatic action, a character must be in need of something. The more important the need, the more risky the journey to satisfy it, the more compelling the story. With needs you also have reasons to grieve and to be angry and to feel fear, and also to hope. It is needs that make both characters and humans ACT.
