Story Structure

Story Structure

We respond most powerfully to stories that follow a particular setup, or structure:
  • In this setup, the main character has a clear goal, backed by a clear motive. There are obstacles and blockages.
  • There is a struggle, there are other characters added to the mix, and there are certain resources that are made available.
  • The obstacle is overcome in the end and there is a certain growth that has happened, leading to further obstacles or bigger goals.
