the last Christmas: story structure and premise

the last Christmas: story structure and premise - student project

Passion: Why do you want to write this story?
I wanted to capture human fears like dying, illness and the unknown in a story, along with giving them a bit of an antidote by play strongly towards the themes of friendship and love.


Theme: 
Opening up to strong friendships are valuable, and can help tide over fear. 


Flaw: 
The protagonist is scared of being vulnerable and facing the past. 


Premise: 
What if a very skeptical, burdened and emotionally distant Protagonist is thrown into an unwanted gathering of past friends, eventually coming to know that one of them is dying, and has to learn how to open his heart out to them to cultivate eventual acceptance and comfort in friendship?
