Week 2: Introduction to Story Structures

Ready, Set, WRITE!

Week 2: Introduction to Story Structure

By now, you should have a pretty good handle on the characters populating your story. It is a given that more will present themselves as you plot. As you write, you may even introduce others. 

Writing is an organic process, and while you can plot and plan like crazy, you will inevitably stumble upon some surprises along the way. For me, that is part of the fun. 

This week, we will be talking about story structure—that is how you construct your plot and tell your story.

An overview of what we'll cover in this section:

  • What is Story Structure?
  • Identifying the two main structures.
  • The Three-Act Structure and The Hero’s Journey.
  • A Story Structure Assignment.

I hope you enjoy the week!
