Story Structure – The Dan Wells Method


Dan Wells is the author of I Am Not a Serial Killer and Partials. He also guest hosts the highly acclaimed Writing Excuses podcast with Brandon Sanderson, Howard Taylor, and Mary Robinette Kowal. Also, I hear he does not have a tail bone. So in summary, Dan Wells is a man of many tales, though he has no tail to tell of.

Anyway, he is also an advocate of the Seven-Point Story Structure method of plotting, a method I have recently discovered and am anxious to try. Check out these links for more information.
