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)
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).
