Write what could change your life.
The purpose of this In & Out is to inspire all of us. Got a hot premise you don't mind sharing? Looking for a fab premise for your next short story? In screenplays, your premise is the logline. There are a few formulaic approaches: |
1. You want something so you go search, you find something (it represents the theme), you take it, return home and all is lost, so you change.
2. When [INCITING INCIDENT] happens, [OUR PROTAGONIST] decides [TO DO ACTION] against [ANTAGONIST].
3. The story is what the hero did to get what he wanted and why.
However, your premises doesn't need to fit a formula. Consider Jurassic Park: humans and dinosaurs are alive together, battling for top position. Consider Star Wars: When a princess' life is at stake, a young farmer fights to save her.
