Tips for writers #amwriting #amtipping #DanWells

A very talented writer friend of mine shared this link,

In it, Dan Wells, author of I Am Not a Serial Killer, describes how he learned story structure from a Star Trek role play kit.

Re-read that again.

Coming from a long line of nerds, I was impressed this Mr. Wells recognized the inherent genius of ST (#nerdalert) and then stupefied to learn how applicable the role play kit’s rules really are to story structure.

While this post may not have a pinch or a plot point 2, I promise these videos will make you look for them in every chunk of writing you see.
