Next year, I plan to extend my research to isolate the hidden need triplet and test for its existence in at least five more classics and non-classics. This minor experiment shouldn't take too long and will just be used to conclude this year's findings.
The primary thesis has not yet been articulated, because the algorithms to be tested in comparison to The Story Template have not been defined, however the goal of the project will be to prove that not only is The Story Template credible (sensitive, specific, and accurate), but that is the most credible (sensitive, specific, and accurate) of all its potential competitors. Potential competitors may include Hero's Journey, The Monomyth, Randy Ingermanson's Snowflake, the Marshall Plan, Freytag's Pyramid, Save the Cat, etc. The number of subjects will be expanded to include at least 15 subjects total (depending on time constraints).
