BR How to Tell a Story

Cover of How to Tell a Story by Peter Rubie and Gary Provost

The book, How to Tell a Story, assumed that a book-length product, novel or non-fictional narrative was the end goal. Although I am most interested in short stories, most of the advice and discussion was easily applicable to my goal.

Dramatic Structure

  • More important than style, syntax, and grammar
  • Determining how story is most effectively told
  • Characters who are not afraid of conflict
  • Conflict that continues to rise until narrative
