The Line is Out [Book Writing Blogrimage 15/30]

Oz-The-Great-and-Powerful.jpg

Spent another hour today working on my outline. Things are shaping more of what I want it to be. Yesterday, I watched the movie Oz while thinking of elements of a good outline for plot. It definitely had an exposition, inciting incident, period of no turning back, progressive complications, climax and resolution, but still was not a good movie. That shows writing, creativity, dialogue and all those elements are still needed. You can have all the "correct" components of a story, and still lose the audience.

Interestingly enough, Oz was filmed in Pontiac, Detroit.
