This amazing explanation of narrative arcs by Kurt Vonnegut had me laughing out loud. To actually be present at this lecture would have been totally awesome. This video is great starting point for narrative structures and point of view, although really only the tip of the iceberg of a very gigantic topic. I hope other writers or people who love books find this enjoyable and amusing. 🙂

He seems such a cool guy. Need to read more of his books
Yeah I know! I haven’t read anything of his yet but this definitely makes me want to. What have you read of his?
