MAGIC STAR OF DRAMATIC WRITING

Magic Star

CONCEPT


Chris Vogler

Is the story a . .
  • metaphor, a model of some aspect of human behavior?
  • thought machine, by which we test out our ideas and feelings about some human quality and try to learn more about it?

Does the story . .
  • make you feel you've been through a satisfying, complete experience, that you've learned something about life or about yourself?
  • deal with the child-like universal questions:
    • who am I?
    • where did I come from?
    • where will I go when I die?
    • what is good and what is evil?
    • what must I do about it?
    • what will tomorrow be like?
    • where did yesterday go?
    • is there anybody else out there?
