When it comes to structuring our stories, sometimes we fall into a rut. We break out the same pattern each time we begin plotting, and we begin to lose perspective.
Learning and borrowing from other disciplines is an amazing way to expand our creativity and keep our writing fresh. What happens when novelists borrow screenwriters’ techniques? Shaelin Bishop discusses this unique application in her YouTube video: 15 Beat Plot Structure.
Shaelin has been a writer for as long as she can remember. She started telling stories as soon as she could talk, and fell in love with writing when she was nine. Now nineteen, she’s completed eight novels and dreams of being a career novelist. She is currently pursing a BFA in Creative Writing. Find her on Twitter and YouTube.
