How do I describe this. This is quite tricky. Saying I was to write a book using the basic 'hero's journey' template with the protagonist evolving in character at the end through some kind of journey. Either emotionally or otherwise. What if the protagonist didn't learn anything and remained the same at the end. Still trapped in a certain situation with no ending, good or otherwise. Does anybody understand that? Do you think any readers would respond to that? Or just bore from it?
