STORY STRUCTURE WORKSHOP
GET UNSTUCK! Discover the most dynamic way to tell your story in
this 55-minute story structure workshop.
Writers tend to get stuck when they focus on their idea of the plot, rather than trusting the aliveness of their characters. In this workshop, Al Watt guides you through the key “experiential” stages of the hero’s journey and helps you to see your story in a new way. Story structure is typically taught as a conceptual model where you are expected to “plot out” your story. However, this rarely yields satisfying results. As Einstein says, “You cannot solve a problem at the same level of consciousness that created the problem.” Every story appears to begin with a problem, but in fact, underlying this dramatic problem is a dilemma. By focusing on the dilemma, which is the source of our story, you will immediately begin to glimpse the true nature of what you’re attempting to express.
By marrying the wildness of your imagination to the rigor of story structure this workshop allows you to structure your story in an organic way. Listen to the workshop over and over again and you will notice your story gradually coming to life.
