Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling
Such great stuff. My favorite is #14 – Why must you tell THIS story? What’s the belief burning within you that your story feeds off of? That’s the heart of it.
I’ve been working on a few novels for years, and these 22 rules challenge so much of my work. The novel I have gotten the farthest on (in terms of getting it close to completion) is severely struggling with rule 14 here. My answer so far as to why I must tell THIS story? “Because, it sounds like a fun story!”
Is that enough?
