Heart of the Story    

Step 3: The Heart of the Story

Now it's your turn to come up with the heart of your story. Here are the steps:

1. Identify the primary emotion or principle driving the story.

2. Refine this emotion so it's specific.

3. Determine what that emotion's opposite might be.

4. Imagine what the outcome will be when these two forces go head to head.

5. Write out the heart of your story in a single sentence.
