TWJ 1.47: Criteria-Driven Story Structure with Larry Brooks

Episode 1.47 – Recorded 10.17.2019 – Criteria-Driven Story Structure with Larry Brooks.

Tonight the Story Engineer himself, Larry Brooks, drops by to chat story structure.

In this episode, Larry walks us through three key questions we need to ask ourselves: How do I know if my story idea is strong enough? How can I revise my WIP to make it even better? How will I know when I’m done?

We talk pacing, structure, pinch points, and more as we go through the big ideas of his latest book for authors, Great Stories Don’t Write Themselves: Criteria-Driven Strategies for More Effective Fiction.
