ORGANIZATION--the way the storyline is laid out in a text
Transcript of ORGANIZATION--the way the storyline is laid out in a text
Organization: Stories use different elements to recount what is happening. Sometimes they go in perfect chronological order; sometimes they are more complex. The more complex, the deeper the meaning and plot can become.
THINK ABOUT THE TYPES OF STORIES YOU READ TODAY VERSUS WHEN YOU WERE ONLY FOUR OR FIVE YEARS OLD, AND EVERY YEAR IN BETWEEN...
Storytelling: The literal use of a story or stories being told within a movie or book.
Flashback: Alongside of storytelling, in a story a sudden retelling or recounting memory
MEDIA RES: A story that starts "in the middle" of the action without setup of exposition
Flashforward: A story that moves past the present moment to reveal a moment that will occur later in the story
Juxtaposition: Placement of scenes, situations or scenarios that are to be compared for the contrasting effects
Story is told and moves along as time passes. From page to page, chapter to chapter, days and weeks go by without interruption or change.
Parallel Plot: Within a movie or book, multiple storylines are being played out, often time slowly converging towards one another.
Characters, Setting and Plot are the pieces that are cut to form the story; similarly, these elements are taped and glued together to make a cogent and clear story. Just as you made your house or building to be one entity/thing, a story is made up of many pieces that are ordered a specific way to be one thing: a novel, a movie, a play, a song, etcetera. The more skill, elements, time, and intricacies that are used, the more impressive and layered the story will be.
