- Gregory LynnOwner+1I wanted to point to two things in the video that Sean said.
One, his six question thing. He didn't say it outright, I don't think, but the six questions aren't going to be the same for every piece. I can see how it works for non fiction. I've actually used something like it in the past. and the basic idea is just that you write down the questions you're trying to answer with your piece. Put them in some sort of order then go down and just answer the questions. When you get done, edit out the questions and there ya go.
The other thing that I think was the most interesting part of the whole thing was his 10% story thing. Instead of concentrating on the facts like a general outline probably would. this concentrates more on the story as a whole and how the scene fits in, how it's supposed to feel. I think I am going to try it on something relatively short in the not too distant future.Jan 15, 2013
