Outlining and creativity are often seen as diametrical. In writing a story, creativity is not enough. In this interactive discussion, we will learn how to use the traditional narrative arc to outline and write stories. We will identify key points integral to story making, such as the conflict, the climax, and the rising action. In doing so, we will learn to outline our stories while maintaining our creativity.
