The premise behind the “Bad Lip-Reading” channel is, What if someone who was deaf tried to lip read something on TV without captions? It’s genius. Pure genius. And absolutely hilarious. It’s worth your time to check out the channel and watch all their videos. Here’s the one they did for Twilight.
THE TRI-CORE SUBSTRUCTURE
This week I want to talk about the foundational layer of story building, the Tri-Core Substructure. Shiny, huh? I made that term up myself because neither my publisher nor I could think of a proper pre-existing term.
What is the Tri-Core Substructure? It is the very basic most primitive form of a story: Character, Experience, Reaction. Or in other words, he came, he saw, he did. Each of these three primitive parts of a story can be reduced to the three core parts of which we will be talking about. Character (personal development), Story (experiential objective), Plot (action/reaction).
It’s time I started beefing up this puny site. As I near graduation with my MA in Theology and prepare to enter the PhD program, it’s time for me to really start digging into my field of research. And if you haven’t figured that out yet, it’s Supernatural Theology.
I’ve explained what Supernatural Theology is HERE, but the question I get more than that is…Why?
So that’s my topic this evening…why Supernatural Theology? Allow me to explain.
