Hello everyone, I know most of you will dread the following statement, but bare with me. I am new to the forum, and yes, new to writing. I have recently decided to begin production on my own independent CGI film. I have in my head a very typical image of the characters, scenario, basic scenes and so on. It's all muddled up though, because I am yet to construct the story. This is where I've come to pause. So I've passed my higher english. But like all "high school subjects", those were just the basics. I lack confidence in writing. I feel like I'm missing basic "writing principles". I want to learn HOW my story SHOULD be constructed. Surely there are rules when writing. Thanks, Ryan. EDIT: I found this "do it over night" guide. Which seems a little un-professional, but hopefully someone here can be the judge of that... http://www.visualwriter.com/HowTo/Plot.htm My question there is, can I honestly write a story from that basic guide?
