Thinking, feeling, and behavior sequences are parallel to writing modes, introspection, emotion, and action in particular, The writing modes: Description, Introspection, Action, Narration, Emotion, Sensation, Summarization, Exposition, Conversation, Recollection, Explanation, and Transition, DIANE'S SECRET.

It's also worth noting Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytical theories derived from studying literature, notably, Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus.

Lest I neglect Caustion's cause and effect, action and reaction, and first cause and last effect; Tension's empathy (caring about what will happen), and suspense (curiosity about what will happen); and Antagonism's dramatic complication of a problem wanting satisfaction (Antagonism, Causation, Tension: ACT) for developing Setting and Plot and Idea and Character and Event and Discourse, SPICED.

Put it all together for an emotionally stimulating narrative: DIANE'S SECRET SPICED ACT.

yes, it is very helpful.. and Decide what you must change in your behavior to align your life more closely to what you believe..Be conscious every day of the decisions you make, however big or small, and how close they bring you to being the person you really want to become.
