Thoughts and Perspectives

I had an interesting day yesterday. Having attended a very enlightening talk by John York, the controller of BBC drama. Not only did he provide some new insights for me on how, not only to solve writing scripts, but also to marry up a five act structure to a three act structure.

-What, you might ask? Basically it's the fundamental way that most scripts know: call, conflict, resolution  or beginning, middle, end; if you want to put it another way.  

Interestingly, these same principals can be applied to roleplaying scenarios and larger campaigns; and tie in rather well with some of the other narrative structure approaches I have been studying.

More on this later, when I have time.
