Christi Krug's curator insight, March 24, 2014 11:46 PM

You've got your plotters, and you've got your pantsers (writing by the seat of their pants), and here's yet another option, writing from the middle.

@Christy Absolutely right. As Gorby (went forgotten last times, in vain) loved to say: "Once started, the thing will develop and go for itself. It has its own dynamism."

Salena Argar's curator insight, May 17, 6:31 AM
Seven steps to the perfect story is a great visual representation of how to build a story. This clearly explains the process of how students can construct their narrative and the types of characters they will use. I would definitely use this in my classroom to help students understand the process of creating a narrative.

Strange to tell Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thousand Faces with Lego characters but it flies by faster chan Campbell.
Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 7, 2013 8:55 PM

Could this 65 slide deck have saved me plowing through Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thosand Faces? Not really, but its fun and flies by providing ADD insight into the basis of all stories.
