              Connecting the Main Character to the Overall Story

              Episode #59

              Main Character Throughline, Overall Story Throughline, and Narrative Argument

              In this episode, I cover the importance of connecting the Main Character’s problem with the Overall Story problem & a method for constructing the Narrative Argument of your story. The former explains the difference between an OK story and an amazing story; all the great narratives of the past take this approach of pitting subjective vs. objec tive. The latter is helpful in determining the narrative drive of a story and keeping you on track with your story’s purpose.
