on Four Throughlines

Great stories--and we mean the really great ones--share one thing in common: they cover all four Throughlines. That means they have a Main Character Throughline, an Influence Character Throughline, a Relationship Story Throughline between the two of them, and an Overall Story Throughline that covers everyone in the story--even the Main and Influence Characters. Put all four of these in a story and you will be lightyears ahead of anyone else (Except, of course, those who already have).

Rid yourself of writer's block. Forever.
