Oh, Andre Chaperon what have you done?
After buying Andre’s course Autoresponder Madness he inadvertently introduced me to The Hero’s Two Journeys by Michael Hauge, which has led me to learning more about storytelling and screenwriting.
As a consequence of this journey I recently bought Story Engineering by Larry Brooks and would like to share with you some of the points I learned or better yet, am learning, from this book.
Story Engineering is about the Six Core Competencies which are necessary to build a successful story. If one is missing, or poorly done, your story will be rocky at best. Therefore I reckon you’d be well advised to study them if you have any passion or desire to better your craft.
1. The Concept of Your Story
2. The Character or Hero
3. Your Story’s Theme
4. Story Structure
5. Scene Execution
6. Writing Voice
I’d love to hear your feedback as always, so please comment below to let me know what you are currently doing to improve your storytelling skills, and share any insights of your own. I love talking marketing with you!
