Last week I got to do a terrific interview to help promote a first-of-its-kind story conference called:
(VIRTUALLY) EVERYTHING STORY.
I’m excited to share this with you, because we talked about a subject that is very dear to my heart!
“BUILDING POWERFUL MOVIE STORIES”
You see, for a long time in the teaching of storytelling something major has been missing.
Sure, up-and-coming writers can work to master the many individual elements they need to create a great screenplay or novel – ah, but then, how do you connect those pieces together into one constantly riveting, rising chain of linking events that wow audiences and pay off with an emotional punch?
How can you build stories so you know in advance that you’re scripts will always work wonderfully?
That’s the key part very few writers hear about!
In this EXCLUSIVE interview I talk about:
- Why Hero Goal Sequencing is the answer to your story building problems
- How the 14 Character Categories can lift and strengthen your writing
- The one thing about storytelling that hasn’t changed in 150,000 years
- Why you should never send out a story that isn’t finished – and how to tell when one is
- How to get and stay objective about your own scripts, to avoid a big selling mistake
- Why good storytelling is really architecture
… and much more.
So if you’re serious about your career, if you want to tell better stories – in a way that is going to be the worldwide trend in storytelling for decades to come, you’re going to want to hear this interview.

Because this is part of a bigger conference, this interview will be live only for a limited time. Go ahead and catch it while you still can:
“Yes, ERIC let me listen to the interview!”
P.S. I don’t think I’ve ever been so candid about what really doesn’t work and how it can be fixed before, but the world of scriptwriting is changing so fast. Storytelling for this medium is expanding at a phenomenal rate, and you have to be ready if you’re going to break in.
If you’re trying to write a script for the purpose of either breaking into Hollywood or shooting your own indie, then you can’t afford not to hear this.
