"I have to tell you, it’s fantastic. Now when I watch movies or read any scripts, it’s like immediately my mind starts thinking the A, the B. They should have worked harder on the B. The B isn’t causing the A. This would be so easy to fix. It’s pretty astounding. The information is incredible. It’s something that once you start to process and really understand, you can’t unsee it."
The truth about great storytelling is hidden in plain view for anyone to see, but nearly EVERY EXPERT ignores the most basic story construct. If you want to write GREAT STORIES, you must understand these three essential storytelling rules:
The most basic trait that every great story has in common is that they always have Two Converging Stories. In fact, the "premise" of great stories is created by this very convergence.
Nearly every story "expert" teaches that Theme creates the "message" of a story, this is horrible information that is just flat out wrong. In all great stories, Theme links the A-Story to the B-Story.
The linear graphs used by nearly every "expert" are flat & two dimensional graphs, based on only one storyline. Structure in all great stories follows a predictable pattern of multiple interwoven stories.

"Already it's clearer what my problem is and what everyone's problem is! There's been this nagging pain for all these years that says there's still something missing even though I've read about it obsessively and tried out so many different techniques. It does feel like a veil has been lifted, so I'm thrilled I'm doing this. Like most things that are really great, it seems so simple when someone finally draws the curtain back and shows what's actually going on! (Brilliant, brilliant stuff, Mitch.)"
Most writers, even seasoned professionals, fail to use a process that delivers consistent results, instead the results are consistently disappointing.
Flat, two-dimensional stories
Constant "Writers Block"
Constant rejections and rewrites
By understanding the specific traits that ALL great stories have in common, writers can use an easy to follow step-by-step process that delivers great stories.
Well thought-out, deep, relevant and meaningful stories.
Properly integrated subplots and themes.
Amazingly complex and rich characters and dialogue.
Story recognition, fan followings, bidding wars... and just an overall feeling of satisfaction with your own work.

Thanks for accommodating me during your presentation related to the breakdown of Good Will Hunting, utilizing your revised program, now referred to as “Your Story Telling Potential”. As you are aware, I have been in the film and television industry for more than 45 years and as a producer I have produced more than 1,500 hours of broadcast material. The last 6 years I have been concentrating primarily on drama script development. It’s refreshing to note that you aren’t hesitant to re-engineer your program to a level where you are taking on certain longstanding and inculcated script and story development ideas, that will without any doubt, raise the eyebrows of the scriptwriting and production fraternity. Your emphasis is not about rearranging the existing model as most new approaches are, it’s something new and different. I’m looking forward to the session related to television series development in a couple of weeks.
Over the past decade I’ve been fortunate to work with so many amazing writers, from household names to first time writers. I’m still amazed at how few writers truly understand stories, and what makes a story really special.
Unfortunately, not only do most aspiring (and professional) writers not understand what makes for a great story, but they also don’t have a process to work through the complex layers and thematic connections that are ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED for any novel or screenplay.
Most writers who come to me have shallow and disconnected story ideas based on the prevailing single storyline concept (that is taught by every single “expert” out there), which inevitably results in stories with no depth, no thematic layers, and nothing to carry stories through a second act to a meaningful climax and resolution.
To make the situation worse, nearly every writer I have worked with has invested enormous amounts of time, energy, and in most cases, money (sometimes A LOT of money) reading books, watching videos, attending seminars, and sometimes even working with high priced consultants who don’t know what they're talking about.
I’m excited to bring my knowledge of storytelling to those who want to learn what actually makes the great stories great, and who want to have a step-by-step system they can use to create stories with their Own Extraordinary Writing Potential.

Good story telling starts with good structure… and good structure starts with Plot Control. This software is like structure on steroids. With Plot Control structure is just done for you. (Very Cool.)
Andy Jenkins, Producer and Partner: Haxan Films
In fact, it was inspiring. I had been struggling with the 3rd act and putting off delivery, but with the help of this system it was like I plowed through a creative wall.
Steven Goldmann, DGA, DGC, Broken Bridges (Paramount), Trailer Park of Terror (Summit)
In the 15 years I’ve been writing for TV and film, I have never come across a system so intuitive to the writer’s needs. This is why movies used to be better than they are now.
Jeremy Miller, Writer/Producer: Entourage, Boston Public, We Are Marshall, Ghost of Girlfriends Past
The way it’s organized, it forces you to fill in the information that makes your story more complete, while at the same time it simplifies the process, so you can keep your mind focused on storytelling.
Cindy Lichtman: Ally McBeal, The Practice
My family is sick of hearing me say how much I love this system, but it’s exciting to use something that forces me to focus on the story, plot, characters, subplots, theme. You’ve made a great product. I love you guys.
Bettie Styurak, Creative Writer Software Client
I finally have a concrete system for outlining. Up until now my spiral notebook of random ideas was my prewriting process, but I can now focus on the use of proper story structure.
Ryan Binse, Creative Writer Software Client
Initially I thought, yeah, just another software I’ll buy and won’t use… but this program is definitely worth its weight in gold. Thank you so much for sharing your remarkable program.
Kim Jacobs, Creative Writer Software Client
It's time for you to unlock Your Own Extraordinary Storytelling Potential... And it's actually quite simple.
It all starts with taking the RIGHT STEP forward today.
All great novels and screenplays are based on TWO STORIES converging. In fact, the very PREMISE of nearly all great novels and screenplays is a description of the convergence of the A-Story with the B-Story. (This is REALLY IMPORTANT, if you don't understand what this means, please watch the above video!)
Theme in a great story is NOT a "message" for the audience and it's NOT the subject matter, rather Theme functions as a BINDING IDEA that links all of the converging storylines together, especially the A-Story and B-Storylines. You must understand the competing (and opposite) Thematic ideas presented by the A and B Storylines.
Story structure is taught by nearly all "experts" using two dimensional graphs with vague terms, such as catalyst, inciting incident, plot points, midpoint, and "big twist" . Whereas, The Simple Story Timeline expresses the manner in which the A & B Storylines converge to create the actual story that is taking place in great novels or screenplays. The Simple Story Timeline uses clear terms that describe what is actually happening, such as: Problem or Opportunity, Complication, Failure or Journey, Success or Failure, Discovery and Reversal.

“I truly don't recall where I first encountered your products, first became aware of you. I believe it was Plot Control 2.0. I, too, have been through film school (not NYU, but a solid foundational program at SMU in Dallas). Like most aspiring screenwriters, I have a somewhat extensive library of screenwriting books. You're absolutely correct that each screenwriting teacher tries to bring their own spin on the material, but at the core of it, they all share the same view. They approach screen story construction in the same way: A-Story-down. They think about crafting the subplots to support the A-story. Theme sort of emerges as an afterthought from knowing your character intimately and what they do through the A-story. Having a tight script is great, and having it rich with integrated themes seems like a great goal. Assuming you can do it. So I'm revisiting the training for Plot Control. That leads me back to reviewing the Mega Course. (Here's what I'm writing to say):
Brother, your method is genius. Really groundbreaking.
Your method isn't just a helpful group of exercises to assist a writer in brainstorming. It's literally reframing the way a story should be constructed, almost as though we've all been trying to paint pictures upside down, or, more accurately, trying to paint a picture by starting with the foreground-the featured object in the image, and then attempting to lay in the background around it to fit. When the best method is to work from the background to the foreground, start with the sky & the distant mountains. Build from that foundation forward. The last thing to paint is the featured tree or house or person riding that horse.
