Created by James R. Harris, the Periodic Table of Storytelling is a clickable infographic which breaks down the various elements of storytelling into a format that’s familiar and easy on the eyes.

The elements in this particular periodic table represent different tropes or ideas that repeat across genres and through time. The elements are organized by categories like Structure, Story Modifiers, Plot Devices, Heroes, Villains, Archetypes, and more. Clicking on an element takes visitors to TVTropes, a large library of tropes collected by the community members.

The table aims to help writers fight against writer’s block.
