Larry Brooks Teaches Us About the Concept of “Concept”

Next book on my reading list is Larry Brooks’ Story Engineering. He understands craft at a level I can only hope to achieve some day.

He’s deconstructing the movie Side Effects in a series of blog posts, extracting the various storytelling elements a bit at a time. (He warns that his posts contain spoilers, so if you’re planning on seeing the movie, do that before you start reading.)

His post on concept clarified this vital bit of craft for me. Read it and learn.
