Twist endings. Multiples protagonist. Complicated storylines.

How does structure help a story and do you have to follow it?

On today's episode we'll look at what kind of rules you need to follow in a story and why you might want to consider breaking them.

Also this week I made a guest appearance on the Making Movies Is Hard podcast. Check out that episode here.

Conflict is a crucial part of every story. It's the driving force that moves the narrative forward. Without conflict, there can be no story.

On today's episode we look at three different sources for conflict in a story:

  • interpersonal conflict
  • environmental conflict
  • inner conflict

A great story doesn't just grab your attention. It also makes logical sense.

On today's episode, we'll talk about the two different layers in a story: how it makes sense in the moment and how it makes sense in terms of overall plot.
 
Sometimes an exciting story falls apart as soon as you stop and think about what is happening. Sometimes a thoughtful well planned out story just isn't interesting. How do you find that balance? How can a story make sense but also keep the audience's interest?
