Story Structure Diagrams « Ingrid's Notes

Story Structure Diagrams « Ingrid's Notes | Story Elements | Scoop.it
Yes, it's true, I've had story structure on the brain. I've also recently joined pinterest (of which I immediately became addicted). But there's a happy side effect of these two obsessions… this post!

 

Holy Cow! Here's a blog post with 10 different diagrams on story structure! I doubt you will ever need another story structure diagram after looking at these.

 

Some are similar. Some have their own unique twist. And then there's the 17 stages of Joseph Campbell's Monomyth to explore. Yikes -- that's a big one!

 

Of course, the simplest story structure is: problem -- resolution. Add to that a set-up/context in the beginning and a meaningful close at the end, and you are done.

 

Hah -- would that storytelling could be so simple! As every professional storyteller will tell you, a powerful story is all in the delivery. Still, if you don't follow the structures in these diagrams, you will simply end up with a plot-based description: "I went to the store. I bought some bread. I came home." No story there! I doubt you would pay money for that one.

 

Soooo -- check out these diagrams, use them to craft your stories, and you are half-way there. Then go work on your delivery :)

TAKE A LOOK AT ALL THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF STORY STRUCTURE DIAGRAMS. WHICH LOOKS MOST LIKE THE ONE WE HAVE DONE IN CLASS?

Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 6:10 PM

A more humerous link, this article uses various funny graphics to explain the basics of plot, character arcs, four act structures, ect.  Interesting because it using a newer medium to better explain an old medium.

"Narrative Arc and the prototypical “Plot Diagram” are key learning tools for building literature comprehension and appreciation. Plot diagrams allowsstudents to pick out major themes in the text, track changes to major characters over the course of the narrative, and hone their understanding of literary structure, meeting many Common Core Standards for English Language Arts (CCSS.ELA-Literacy). In addition, these concepts give students a fuller understanding of classroom texts as well as stories present in their favorite books and movies. Below is the basic structure of a plot diagram."
