I am still extrapolating ideas and analyzing how stories work. Part of my spiral theory hypothesis. Added to my notebook are currently: sidetrack, subplot and weaving theory. I’ll add a color version of this chart when I’m free.
What this proves is that there are many layers to storytelling and by breaking down these separately you can see the bigger picture, overlap them and work out how stories work.
These are all pertaining to linear stories however. I have yet to see how they might overlay against a non-linear type of story.
