A blog about writing and all things story…
Is the question at the heart of your story interesting? Is it important to the story? Is a scene a chapter? Are all chapters one scene? Certainly things to ponder when writing a novel/screenplay/short story. Listen to these two pros discuss story architecture in this interview with author and instructor, Larry Brooks Storyfix.com and UK
author Joanna Penn http://www.thecreativepenn.com.
Joanna, a brilliant and HUGELY successful author (and extraordinary entrepreneur) tells us that when she was writing Pentecost, she couldn’t make it work until she read Larry’s chapter about scenes. Then, poof! She got it right, and boy did she. If you haven’t read Pentecost, check it out.
PLUS, Larry shares the number one tip he ever received about writing. It’s gold.
Get a cup of coffee/tea and give a listen (about 30 minutes) for some great storytelling techniques.
