Truby: Stories that want to be told are not “out there.” They’re in you. In my class, I talk about a number of key writing exercises that help you find what is totally original to you. Incredibly, most writers don’t know, and it’s a fatal mistake. Then we go through the techniques you must know to turn that original seed into a professionally told story. An original idea professionally told is an unbeatable combination. It’s not easy, but it can be done and it’s the only recipe I know that works.
