Beating the Story is a how-to handbook that helps creators and critics see how stories work. It follows up and expands on the story beat system first described in the cult hit Hamlet’s Hit Points. In addition to providing four in-depth story analyses, Beating the Story gives copious and detailed creative guidance to aspiring and professional novelists, screenwriters, comic creators, and everyone else who needs to understand how stories work.
