I really wanted to pass along this infographic on story design, but my blog site will not let me embed the whole thing. So I've broken it into three screenshots for you.
I'm puzzling over this myself because my current book ideas do no seem to fit one of these patterns, although I can think of many books that do. So what does that mean? Am I a horrible plotter? Or did Vonnegut miss a pattern or two? What do you think?
Thanks to Anne Wainscot and visual.ly for sharing the original diagrams.
