Readers and Writers – Enjoy

Kurt Vonnegut shares a simplified graph delivered with unique wit, showing three basic story structures.

Readers, Aspiring writers, Young writers, Children, Experienced writers, can all sit back and enjoy this clip.

Can you think of a good book that didn’t follow one of the 3 curving lines on the graph?

Reading provides an opportunity to experience emotion, live the story with the characters, and hopefully close the cover (or shut off the e-reader) uplifted by a happy ending but  feeling a bit sorry that you must leave the characters behind.

Some literary fiction explores deep problems of the human condition and seeks to increase reader understanding, but there is no resolution.  Nothing uplifting. Ouch.

But for today, I hope this video makes you smile.
