I found this a while ago on FB and can not seem to find the original FB-poster, or otherwise I’d at least tip my hat to them. Anyway, this is about a very easy idea/way to structure your story:
Enter… the Storysaurus!
According to blogger Jamie Harrington it is “a dinosaur with spikes on his back. Each spike represented a chapter, and his whole body represented the story’s main plot” and originates from her second grade teacher Ms. George (so, kudos where they’re due!). Jamie recreated it for online-posterity. Thanks for that! It is easy to understand, you don’t even have to know your Aristotle for that one (not that it hurts)!
