What Is A Structural Toolbox?
Put simply, a structural toolbox is the foundation work all writers need to put in to ensure they …
- understand how structure works
- can apply structural techniques to their writing
Think of it as a collection of tools you have to hand in order to identify and fix your stories. This is why I like to call it a structural toolbox!
An important thing to remember on structure is that one size will definitely NOT fit all. Different stories will call for different solutions … Just like different DIY jobs around the home will require different tools.
