For writers of all levels who need step by step processes to develop their story from start to finish - before you begin writing the script/story.
After having done a lot of research on the best ways of understanding your story, I have put together 2 step by step ways to flesh out an idea so at least the story has a backbone. It is working for me and I would love to share it with you guys. Both classes begin at 11 am and end at 6 pm on Saturday and at 4 pm on Sunday.
Below is a brief structure of the workshop:
- Meditating on the world of your idea.
-Searching for themes you believe in.
-Building the lead character from their environment and the antagonist.
-Exploring the pathways from the beginning, middle and end using a step by step method.
- summarising Saturday's step by step method.
- looking at motifs and inserting clues to build tension.
-going back to your story to add or subtract.
-fitting your story into the three-act structure using sequences and plot points.
-A brief working out of how to write the one-page pitch.
