Week Four: The Thing Called a Plot

Continuing the How to Write Stories -and Get Them Published! e-course, learn about the four mechanisms which together create an engine that drives readers forward.

This week, you’ll gain an understanding of

• the things called ‘plots’, what they are and how they are actually made (rather than how you might suppose they are made)

• the ‘nuclear reactor’ that drives all successful stories through to their conclusion

• how the four basic genres - Epic, Tragedy, Irony and Comedy - are composed and how they work to create different effects and much, much more, including a detailed breakdown of one of Marvel’s most successful movies, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, to illustrate why it was so successful!
