This month I thought I would publish the slides from a presentation I gave this week at my writing course.
I wanted to delve deeply into the idea of plot and structure and then test the popular technique writers are taught that quest, discovery or journey type stories all have 12 stages. I did this by analysing two recent films and book that are very different indeed: The Girl On A Train
and Doctor Strange
. If you haven't seen these: spoiler alert! Don't read the penultimate two slides!
My (12-stage, of course!) writing course can also be taken online. Contact me
