Targowa 56 Street, Warsaw

 

All writers, beginners and veterans, face the same challenge — a blank nothing they must turn into pages filled with touching, moving, engaging STORY.

So what makes a story interesting?

The truth is that even the most exciting characters or most brilliant dialogues will get you nowhere without a solid plot. This is not a 21st century discovery. Have a look at these lines written nearly 2500 years ago:

“We maintain, therefore, that the first essential, the life and soul, so to speak, of Tragedy is the Plot; and that the Characters come second – compare the parallel in painting, where the most beautiful colours laid on without order will not give one the same pleasure as a simple black-and-white sketch of a portrait.”

The quote comes from “The Poetics” by Aristotle. Highly recommended read for every writer.

There are numerous theories that help writers find and shape their stories. Some of them sound a bit archaic or oldschool, nowadays. Others seem to be too simple and not attractive for contemporary storytellers.

There is, however, this one method that turns plotting into an easy and pleasant experience… The Mini-Movie Method!

This seminar will help you learn and understand it in just two days. You’ll love it!
