“Audiences love both the feeling part (reliving the life) and the thinking part (figuring out the puzzle) of a story. Every good story has both.”
John Truby, The Anatomy of Story: 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller

“Good storytelling lets the audience relive events in the present so they can understand the forces, choices, and emotions that led the character to do what he did.”
John Truby, The Anatomy of Story: 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller

“Any character who goes after a desire and is impeded is forced to struggle (otherwise the story is over.) And that struggle makes him change. So the ultimate goal of the dramatic code, and of the storyteller, is to present a change in a character or to illustrate why that change did not occur.”
John Truby, The Anatomy of Story: 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller
