How to Craft a Story
You may be wondering what makes this book different from all the other books about writing and storytelling.
The difference is that none of the writing advice that I have read has been able to explain the basic elements of 'stories' and how those elements work.
Many people give advice about story structure, formulas, plots, and other things that build upon the foundation of what a story is ...but I have not heard anyone explain to me what that foundation is nor why stories are constructed in those ways. If you want to create good stories, you must master the basics. If you don't know the basics, there is a limit to how well you can create a story.
Many people know how to write a story, but there are also many people who don't know how a story works. Many of the problems that I've seen in stories are in the basic construction of those stories. In this book, I want to explain the basic elements of story construction, how those elements work, why and how those elements work together, and tell you how to fix problems which even some professional authors encounter.
