Application of TRIZ in Literature; an Algorithm for Systematic Story Writing Based on mega Problems
Stories have always been an inseparable part of human beings' life. they are a robust instrument which humans exploit to enjoy pleasure and transfer various concepts. So, creating a charming story has always been valuable. Nevertheless, writing a compelling story is arduous and time-consuming. This paper by considering the stories as a realm of encountering characters with problems (bringing stories to the problem-solution space) have used problem solving and structured innovation material to create a systematic algorithm for story writing. The algorithm has been designed based on TRIZ tools and principles. TRIZ, theory of the resolution of invention-related tasks, was introduced by Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues in 1946 in the former USSR. It is a set of tools, methods and strategies developed by years of research and studies of ample patents in order to scrutinize the problems and propose ideal solutions. The proposed algorithm would ease the process of story writing and presents a new specific discipline which the author could systematically write copious stories based on problems. The algorithm includes five certain steps including: 1- identifying a problem and discovering its logic, 2- defining characters and establishing a functional diagram 3-creating story line by exploiting conflict loop, 4- designing climax and terminating the story 5-rewriting and extracting long story from it.
