I have never reviewed anything on Amazon before but I feel so indebted to Bill Johnson that I have to give him a review. I went to a big namefilm school for college and throughout the entire 4 years and thousandsof dollars, I never learned more about storytelling then I did readingthis 3 dollar kindle book. Bill Johnson really gives you the map to themaze. After 6 years of making movies, I had some idea on what made astory work and what didn't, but Bill Johnson really gives thetheoretical groundwork to what makes a story resonate with an audience.Not only did the book corroborate some ideas that I already had butenriched them and gave me so much more to think about. Thank You Bill!
From the Author
When I was young, I was an intuitive writer. I once wrote nine plays in one year, including full lengths.
But my writing always hit a certain ceiling.
Then I took a class from story analyst David Morgan, who taught me that understanding storytelling was something that could be understood.
I've spent my life going down that road, gathering and sharing understanding.
I welcome you to join me, for as long as it suits you.
