On Plot and Dramatic Structure

If you're not reading Chuck Wendig's Terrible Minds blog... why not?

And while we're on the subject, Jason Arnopp (soon to be famous the world over for writing Stormhouse) posted this little anecdote on Facebook which sums up dramatic structure as succinctly as you could ever imagine.

How a young Alan Plater's agent dismissively summed up dramatic structure: "Oh darling, it's two or three surprises followed by an even bigger surprise". Love that.
