Unique among writing and story workshops, The 18+ Secrets of Successful Story Structure with Dr. Williams, is not a collection of industry anecdotes and good but disconnected ideas, but rather a focused system of simple, practical methods that will help you design a story that will naturally and organically connect your characters and audience or readers. The key is that every character arc, every subplot, and every conflict that drives the drama, must be centered around a single, logical connected concept called the Moral Premise —the foundational concept at the heart of all successful stories. It is a principle that has been passed down from ancient times, and a principle that modern research has shown is imbued in all great stories that connect with audiences. If you ignore this principle, your story is doomed. But if you consistently apply it to each character, scene, and dramatic beat, it will empower your storytelling, and illuminate all the other techniques you bring to the craft. Bring your story ideas as we will workshop the structural elements.
