The very first National Story Planning Day took place on October 25, 2015. I hosted a free four-part live virtual workshop on Periscope, and created a free workbook to go along with the event.
And during the live event, I walked participants through everything they need to know about their stories before they write them. The bare-minimum stuff.
Anyone who did all of the exercises walked away with a basic story plan.
If you weren’t able to attend the live event, you can still use the content from the event to plan your own story in a day. All you have to do is download the workbook and watch the video replays (see below).
You can either watch all of the videos and then go through the workbook exercise all at once, or you can watch each video and then work through the corresponding section in the workbook before moving on to the next video. Up to you.
