The simplest way to write stories

Welcome to my Notes To Self Series where I share my raw thoughts as they come to me in form of insights, epiphanies or ideas.

A character >> is put into a situation >> faces a problem >> then takes an action >> that leads to consequences >> that creates a new situation >> until he faces the next problem >> and it continues.

The decisions that the character makes when they face a problem in a “situation” reveals who he/she really is.

The key here is the “situation”. That’s where all the juice is.

That’s what makes “once upon a time” so interesting.

Now think back on any story that had an impact on you and tell me if it fits the bill.
