In this, the final—and most epic—episode of Season 2, I finish off the initial development of my story and introduce the various features of the new Narrative First Atomizer.
But first I kick things off with an analysis of Thor:Ragnarök—NOTE: in the episode I inaccurately assess the Story Outcome as Success. Clearly the efforts to reach the Overall Story Goal—Saving Asgard from Ragnarök—fail. Switching this Story Dynamic also changes the Relationship Story Throughline Problem and Solution. The Atomizer link below presents an accurate and updated account of the storyform.
Listener mail paves the way for an extended discussion about the Crucial Elements, particularly in regards to a Steadfast Main Character. I finish off my first pass of The Red Lake by briefly outlining the Main Character, Influence Character, and Relationship Story Throughlines. And finally, I cover all the features of the Narrative First Atomizer—a brand new service that sheds light on the elements of story structure.
See you next year!
