• Why is Story Structure so important?

Standard Story Structure shows you what all successful stories have in common.

Understanding this gives you the tool you need to make your narrative as powerful and as compelling as possible.

Effective Story Structure, more than anything, pulls the reader through the story.

This structure is thousands of years old – for one simple reason – it works.

You can see (in one single page) the entire sweep or your story-arch and understand at a glance what needs to happen in each of the 5 movements.

From there you can easily bore down and design each chapter and scene.

• How does all this benefit the aspiring storyteller such as yourself?

Story Structure gives you a tried and true pattern upon which to base the blueprint of your story.

When you have a blueprint you can write quickly, smoothly and with certainty. You will compose with full confidence that your narrative will deliver the adventure desired and demanded by your readers.

Great stories are not composed by accident.

Without such a blueprint, even the most creative mind and industrious writer is just typing and praying.

It's the uncertainty of what to write (what to have happen next, and next, and next) that eats away at our confidence. It's the very lack of structure that causes us to go slow, doubt our creativity, and second guess our stories and our ability to tell them well.

This perpetual uncertainty saps our creative energy more than anything else. It makes us uncertain of our vision, our ability, and our ultimate success.

Discovering and using Standard Story Structure to Design your narrative will set your creativity free in countless ways that you can't even imagine.

Once you discover what you've been missing you will understand just how suppressed and restrained you've been while writing before "Story Structure.
