Dan Harmon’s Story Circle
Dan Harmon is a US writer who devised an algorithm that he believes can be applied to all stories you see on screen – but can equally be applied to any story – in any medium.
He sets out his ‘story circle’ in a series of blog posts aimed at demystifying the writing process.
The circle is divided into eight segments, each representing a stage of the plot. A character is introduced, wants something, enters a new environment, adapts to that environment, achieves their goal but encounters problems as a result, leaves that world and changes as a result.
