What is a Story?

Jane Friedman quotes a long excerpt from “How to Write Your Best Story” by Philip Martin.

This book could prove useful to storytellers, writers, illustrators, playwrites, and filmmakers, in fact, to anyone who is trying to communicate to others in any form.

The excerpt includes:

  • Story leads to meaning
  • Going beyond narrative and beyond plot
  • Less is more
  • But: Spin out certain threads
  • The oldest art

Read the full excerpt in Jane Friedman’s blog, then go and buy the book!
