Storytelling by Graph, Spreadsheet and Legal Pad


New Ways to Visualize Your Story

The Story Grid, from Shawn Coyne featuring novelist and creativity master, Steven Pressfield.
This five part video series, is a “comprehensive methodology to teach Story Editing”. The gist is that you can literally map a story out on a legal pad, spreadsheets, and grid paper to see how and if it works.

Not Just For Authors

The series is meant to help out long-form authors, but I can see how any storyteller could use a system like this, whether the story is a long novel or a short new media story.
So, whether or not you think it’s cool to rate an emotion from 1 to 10, it’s worth a look at this to get a new POV on storytelling.
