Your missing piece

You know that awesome moment when you have a new idea for a story? Your mind runs marathons creating characters, settings, and worlds and you know you're going to make something special.

But when you sit down to write all that energy and excitements gets you through 30 pages. Then you're left staring at your keyboard wondering what happens next.

You call it writer's block. You tell yourself we just need to take a break. But then a few months (or years) later you run out of excuses so you move onto the next story. "This time will be different," you tell yourself, but every unfinished story turns out the same.

No matter what you do or what you try your story's always stuck.

I've been there. In fact, I spent years there. I had the ideas, I had the worlds, I had the characters, but I didn't have a story. I thought I had all the important puzzle pieces put together, but I was missing the most important one: plot.

Unlock your story

Plot is what takes you from "Once Upon A Time" to "The End." It's the story that unfolds when you mix the cocktail of characters, settings, and worlds you have in your head.

I used to think mastering plot was impossible, that if I didn't have it naturally I wasn't meant to be a writer. But when I started studying it I realized plot isn't some nebulous, abstract gift you're either born with or without - it's a pattern in every story we love, every movie we watch, every tv show we binge.

It's a pattern we can learn, a pattern we can repeat, and a pattern that can unlock the organic and original stories in our head just waiting to be told!
