You probably won't recognize these storytelling elements from creative writing class.
"Karen Dietz's insight:
Not only is this a great tool to use, but what I really like about this article is that is hows how to use it!
"And it gives more background on how the table was created (culled from TV plots).
"The table creates wild and fun plots to play with -- even for business stories! In fact, you may find some of yours buried in here.
"Or if you are stuck for stories, play around with the table and I bet you will find some to tell from your real life.
"In any event, this should keep you busy and happy for awhile :))"
