Do you want to create amazing stories people will love?

Are you looking for objective ways to analyze your story to make sure it's working, or figure out why it's not?

Are you curious about different ways of outlining editing or outlining a story? 

If you've answered "yes" to any or all of these questions then this book is for you. 

The Perfect Story is the synthesis of knowledge I've gained from the sources listed below. I encourage everyone to read these for themselves, but in the mean time it's my hope that I can save you a considerable amount of time, and perhaps shed new light on the information these masters of storytelling have given us.
