7 Basic Plots - #7 "Rebirth"
We’ve arrived at the SEVENTH and final of the 7 Basic Plots: Why We Tell Stories —Rebirth.
While “rebirth” conjures up images of a phoenix rising from the ashes, we now might also think of a wilting rose in a castle or the Ghost of Christmas Past. Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast & A Christmas Carol are all familiar classics that can be considered a “rebirth” plot.
A dark shadow, menacing threats & finally, a redemption figure are key components in resolving a Rebirth story.
We’re excited to wrap up these 7 story frameworks with which you can/should start any project.
Are you (or your project) the hero that needs redeeming? The solution to overcoming the monster? The map to guide one’s Quest?
Assigning a plot and making a story out of something builds a more compelling case—and hopefully a happy ending.
It’s all here for you in Christopher Booker’s 7 Basic Plots: Why We Tell Stories.
