Story structure with Merlin!

Some time back we had the American screen writer Barbara Slade as a teacher in story structure and scriptwriting. Here we began working with stories, that we continued working on this week. This week we had the Danish Merlin P. Mann as a teacher (the co-creator of the Taynikma series), and his teaching was a continuation of what we did with Barbara: 3 act structure, the hero's journey, A-story/B-story and so on.

At the end of the week we had a product that consisted of the story outline, which is a bullet point description of the actions of the story, where you take out all flavor and mood out of the story. Like that you boil the story down to structure and you can focus on making the structure simple and working.

The comic story we're working individually on now will be a 20 pager, but we won't finish it until the beginning of next year.
