Spine & Story: the Power of Structure

img_1205If “plot is the route you take” and “story is the journey you make”, as Paul Ashton says at the BBC Writers’ Room, then what is structure?  The map?  The road?  And how can structure help us to build narrative drive when we’re writing – rewriting ?
Posted here is the Power Point for today’s workshop on structure the  with Save As Writers, “Canterbury’s Liveliest Writing Group”.   Please click through for a crash course in story structure:  how it can work, what (some of) the options are, and how the options can help writers – and readers.  There’s also a rather splendid video of Kurt Vonnegut and talk of wolves. What’s not to like?  Here’s the link to open and/or download the Power Point:  spine-and-story
Many thanks to today’s workshop writers:  it was a pleasure to meet you, however fleetingly!
