Overfall Press #ad - Winner, international Moving Image Book Award. Michael Wiese Productions. The anatomy of story 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller. A special section devoted to television writing and its unique attributes ends each chapter. Whatever your education and background in writing or story, this book and its unique focus contributes foundationally useful information not covered elsewhere -- which may be the missing piece that leads to greater results, both on the page and in the marketplace.

Mr. His experience in the industry and as a screenwriting professor and coach have led him to recognize that it's the selection of the initial idea that is the most important part of the process -- with the most impact on the project's chance of success. And as Mr. And that's what the idea focuses on -- laying out what those specific elements are, and how to master them.

While its concepts originate from the author's screenwriting experiences, they apply equally to commercial fiction writing, playwriting and other forms of "story" -- because the focus is on what makes an underlying concept compelling enough to appeal to a substantial audience or readership. The "seven elements of a viable story" in the Idea form an acronym for the word PROBLEM, since every story is really about one, at its core.

The Idea: The Seven Elements of a Viable Story for Screen, Stage or Fiction #ad - Each chapter focuses on one of these seven deceptively simple-looking aspects of a strong story, which are anything but easy to master. But writers are usually in the dark about this, not realizing that the project they spent months or years on had fundamental flaws on a concept level, in the eyes of the people they most hoped to impress with it.

But even the best fiction writing books and screenwriting experts tend to move quickly past the crucial step of choosing a viable idea, to get to the specific plotting and composition of it, because there is so much to master in those later parts of the process -- which feel a lot more like "writing" than developing and mulling over potential story concepts.
