So, I love chemistry. And I love telling stories. And once upon a time, thought that these two loves were destined never to meet. *sneef*
But I was wrong!
Enter the Periodic Table of Storytelling!
The link above the picture will take you to the interactive page. It’s addictive! Don’t go unless you have a bunch of time on your hands, because you’re going to get sucked in.
I tried to apply these storytelling elements to my story to create a chemical molecule. I think I have it down!
So, the structure is Conflict (C).
The setting is Redemption Quest (Rq).
As with most paranormal fiction, the audience is going to have to Suspend Their Disbelief (Sus).
So using the rules of the standard Periodic Table (altered a little bit to account for there being more columns in the Storytelling PT), I came up with this formula:
I might have to work on this a little more, but that’s the gist of it. I wish I knew how to make subscripts!
So what’s your story’s chemical formula?
