The Mathematics of Story Telling

There are standard patterns,
In writing of fiction,
From which calculations,
Can be made,
That is the birth of,
The story telling mathematics.

A character is like a digit,
A plot is like a operator,
Making a novel an equation.

Every digit has a value,
Just like how every,
Character has morals,
Every digit changes through the equation,
Just like how every,
Character changes through the novel.

Every operator progresses the equation,
Just like how every,
Plot moves the story forward.
Every operator affects the answer,
Just like how every,
Plot affects the ending.

The final answer,
Can be negative or positive,
Just like how every,
Epilogue can be sad or happy.
