WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?Think about the story creation process (writing) as one big "problem."You want to travel from where you are right now to (without a story that works) to a place where your story takes on a life of its own. Your desired destination is where stories entertain and enlighten. The practical way to unpack that explosively complex problem is by breaking it down, into smaller, more easily solvable units. Just as performers make active micro-decisions they call beats, so do Story Grid Beats pare down your story problems into specific high-resolution mini-puzzles.They're like global positioning system reports for when you find yourself lost on your writer's journey. And once they define the problem, they offer procedural advice about how best to reframe your approach and solve it in your unique way. After all, you can't begin to solve a problem until you know what it is. YOU ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. THE PROBLEMS ARE THE PROBLEM.
