How to string together a story.

I’m a big fan of Larry Brooks over at Storyfix.com and his books.

But I have to admit, sometimes all this story structure stuff just zooms right over my head.

For me, a story begins with one scene. A scene I can’t get out of my head. However, often times that’s as far as it goes. After that, I get stuck.

Larry writes about a different way to look at story structure. Just string together the scenes. What came before and what happened after your mind captativing scene. Although, it’s still a little more difficult than stringing beads, his explanation is eye-opening.
