Whether you prefer to create a detailed plot outline, jot down just a few notes, or just sit down and begin writing, you cannot ignore story structure. You might perfect it before you begin to write or during the editing process. Most often, you will need to do so both in planning and revision.

This course explores key concepts in building a story line that will keep your reader engaged. We make no judgments about whether detailed plotting or a more improvised approach is best. That's your call. This course just looks at what the finished product needs to look like regardless of your planning strategy.

Topics Covered include:
  • Classic plot structure
  • Stories in Three Acts
  • Character-driven and Situation-Driven Stories
  • Goal Orientation in Story Structure
  • Four Classic Conflicts and One Modern one
