Finding the Structure of the Story You Want to Write

Dec 14th, 2017

It's one thing to find different ways to write about your story's structure--but what about structuring what it is you want to write?

With Subtext's Storytime feature, you can do that.

Start here:

What Do You Want to Write About?

What is your story about? Is it about a band of marauding dwarves or a romance between long lost lovers? What if your story is as simple as a retelling of The Ugly Duckling?

The Ugly Duckling

I didn't even get a chance to finish my thought before the Atomizer came back with a "gist" of my story's structure!

What about something completely different?

My girlfriend Summer just suggested writing a story about "a lesbian and a straight girl." Let's see what the Atomizer says.

So many different stories to tell!

Now the only decision to make is where to focus the conflict. Do I want to write about the struggle with "Chasing Girls" or the very genuine challenge of "Getting a Girlfriend"?

Or maybe I want to get right down to the heart of the matter and write about "Giving It to Someone Straight"-a very literal interpretation of something emotional and passionate.

And this is where the Atomizer flips the script from analysis to creation.

A simple notion about a complicated relationship suddenly turns into the basis for a compelling and meaningful story!
