Smarter Story Structure (online course)

Write Addictively Entertaining Stories—Faster

With my online course, Smarter Story Structure, you’ll learn practical tips for overcoming plot problems like these in your screenplay or novel:

  • the story starts too slowly (according to a Goodreads survey, 46.4% of readers abandon novels for this reason)
  • the story doesn’t get going until halfway through (this happened in almost a quarter of scripts read by a studio reader in a year)
  • the middle “runs out of gas” (even John Grisham admits this is a tricky issue)
  • the climax doesn’t deliver fireworks, merely sparklers
  • the story is the right length…but isn’t a good read (uh-oh)

Story Structure Worksheet for Screenwriters & Novelists

Story Structure Worksheet from Scribe Meets World

You are not alone. Story structure gives every writer a headache.

Fortunately, I’ve got something that’s better than aspirin. (It’s free too.)

It’s called the Ultimate Story Structure Worksheet.

It will walk you, step by step, through the process of plotting your next screenplay (or novel).

At 18 pages, it’s comprehensive, but not overwhelming.

With it, you’ll be able to complete your screenplay, knowing that its structure is sturdier than Stonehenge.

Specifically, the worksheet includes questions and checklists to help you craft:

  • a logline in less than 10 minutes
  • an inciting incident that engages audiences right away
  • a midpoint with meaning
  • an Act Two ending with emotional impact
  • a badass climax
  • a screenplay with commercial appeal–and–minimal amateur mistakes

I created the Ultimate Story Structure Worksheet because I remember how much trouble screenplay structure gave me when I first started to study screenwriting.

But then, after I had a few of those “a-ha” moments, writing a screenplay became so much easier!

I want the process to be easy for you, too.

    I’ve clicked three times and can’t access the report on the Structure Worksheet… problems internal?
