"So you’ve got this script or this novel you’re working on. Is it good? How do you know? Does it have fully dimensional characters and a plot that digs up their demons and forces them into a reckoning?
Story By Numbers is a step-by-step deep dive into structure that will take your story from an underdeveloped storm of "cool ideas", to a slick, compelling work with fully dimensional characters. It uses the protagonist’s inner conflict as the guide to developing plot points and meaningful conflicts. It takes an irreverent, hands-on approach to story and character development in three parts:
Part One tackles the infamous 4 Act, 8 Sequence, 24 Plot Point structure presented in the Anatomy of Chaos series.
Part Two is a 35 Question guide to interrogating your story and organizing it into a compelling structure.
Part Three is next level, dope shit to think about as you’re developing your stories.
Story By Numbers guides you through a vivisection of your story and helps you find ways to trim the unnecessary stuff, while fleshing out one dimensional characters."
