It’s been said that there are only 7 available plots and many have tried to reduce storytelling down to is barest essentials.

However, the power of the story knows few boundaries and we become sucked in and seduced by the twists and tales in the narrative as characters reveal themselves and story lines unfolded.

The reality is that telling really great stories is pretty hard to do, despite what screenwriting courses might tell you. It’s also something that needs some systems like thinking- (take the visual above which is from Harry Potter’s JK Rowling) where she’s charted out a chronology and various plot lines. This is real work!!!
