Episode 47: Faculty Member, Frank Mungo Talks Story Structure Using TLC Methods
“First thing you want to do is set the scene. Then you want to transport your audience by telling the story in the present tense. Because then they can start seeing what the character sees as the story evolves. You try to use as much imagery as you can so they can get an idea that will allow them to draw their own image of what that looks like.”- Frank Mungo, 2008 Grad & Faculty Member
