7 Anchor scenes

Postby PaulE » Tue, 06 Jun 2017 4:32 pm

Have you ever wanted a simple visual showing you a standard structure for a story? Well, how about the 7 anchor scene model overlaid on a 3 act structure?

Lani Diane Rich has been teaching writing for over 10 years, and is an award winning author. She's running weekly podcasts in her How Story Works show, and this visual is on her latest podcast.

You can find the podcasts at https://chipperish.com/. Each is around 10-15 minutes long, perfect to listen to on that boring commute.
