Story Architecture: An Introduction to Structure That Empowers Planners and Pantsers Alike
In this eye-opening Writer's Digest Conference session audio recording, author Larry Brooks provides a fresh look at story structure and helps you to answer this question: "how I do know what goes where in a story, and why?"
Working with genre, concept and premise as the opening context for any story, you'll learn how to recognize and implement that which comes naturally to some and feels like an alien language to others: the optimal sequence of the story, which allows it to unfold in a way that taps into its maximum dramatic and emotional potential. Larry calls it "mission-driven" storytelling, using CONTEXT (which shifts from quartile to quartile) as the benchmark and guide for scenes, no matter where they appear in the story.
