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.
