Into The Woods: How Stories Work And Why We Tell Them by John Yorke
A structural guide to storytelling, plotting, punch, flow step by step
What I learned From It
Although such a step by step guide seems a bit prescriptive and in theory has the potential to limit the creative flow, I found that following the principles helped prevent a story from being a shapeless mass and made it take shape and form. A bit like a block of marble being turned into Michelangelo’s David (although perhaps my results have been less classically terrific). Or a diving board: a structure from which to soar.
