The standard story format, if
It is so formulaic, I am not sure how I never really noticed it before.
Go ahead. Go look for yourself.
Here are 7 movies/stories just off the top of my head that
- Silence Of The Lambs
- Tommy Boy
- The Count Of Monte Cristo
- Karate Kid
- The Empire Strikes Back
I ruined it for you too.
You are welcome.
Here is nearly every story you see or hear in a nutshell: A CHARACTER who wants something encounters a PROBLEM before they can get it. At the peak of their despair, a GUIDE steps into their
lives,gives them a PLAN,and CALLS THEM TO ACTION. That action helps them avoid FAILURE and ends in a SUCCESS.
