All story is about action, but it's also about choice.
Characters choosing to do something to get what they want. And that choice is always present, even if it doesn't feel like it.
They could take the easy path, the comfortable one, the one of least resistance. Or they could take the hard one that feels unfamiliar and uncomfortable.
This is why it's hard; some stories spend their entire time building up to that choice.
Or they begin there and show the fallout of making that choice.
Whether a choice seems simple or hard, it's always there and making the story happen.
