Spread for writers

Hi, all, I'm new here. Name is Kim and the handle stands for "Not Cool Enough For A Funky Name." Despite this depressing lack of creativity, or perhaps because of it, I've developed my own spread to help me with story ideas.

1. Who? (the protagonist)
2. What? (the conflict)
3. Where? (the background)
4. Why? (subconscious motivators)
5. How? (the protagonist's response to the conflict)
6. Outcome

Feel free to use, modify or ignore, but I got an entire story out of it in one sitting (took about two hours to complete, long-hand).

Hi ncefafn, welcome!

I thought you might also be interested in a few other writer spreads that have been posted in the past:

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.

thanks for this GREAT thread... I can't wait to share it with my boyfriend. ^^

A paradoxical young woman who believes her fate lies in the Powers that Be, yet constantly battle to control her own d3stiny.

Do fate determine our choices, or do the choices we make determine fate?

Hello ncefafn - welcome and thanks for outlining the spread. You really shouldn't put yourself down like that - what's cool anyway, that's what I'd like to know?? Welcome to you too, Vynara, I know you've been posting quite a bit, but I haven't 'officially' met you yet
Wavebreaker, thanks for those links - I had unearthed them in a search a while ago and intended to post on them. There seems to be a link between Tarot and writers, just as between Tarot and cats (see Talking Tarot forum)! Would anyone else agree????
I do intend to try out those spreads and post on whether they help or not - hope you'll all do the same.

Pronounced 'Banfassa' - it means 'woman of knowing'. Nothing at all to do with beans! :)

Lol I think I meant a link between Tarot and cat-lovers/cat-owners, in the above post!

Cool, ncefafn. I'm about to go try it, just to see if I get hit with any inspiration!
