The Editor's Six Core Questions

Today, I am kicking off my Story Grid Series with the Editor's Six Core Questions.

The six questions are:

  1. What's the genre?

  2. What are the conventions and obligatory scenes for the genre?

  3. What's the Point of View?

  4. What are the objects of desire?

  5. What's the controlling idea?

  6. What is the Beginning Hook, Middle Build, and Ending Payoff?
