The "Shape" of Stories

Vonnegut has been a huge influence on my work. For this first post I would like to show you a video of Kurt Vonnegut speaking on the "shape" of stories. I find it extremely relevant and important to the playwrights (and other such storytellers) out there. It's a short video but full of content. You can find more about "shape" of stories in his book A Man Without a Country. In the book, he dives in a little more on this subject including the "shape" of Kafka's writings and Shakespeare's Hamlet. Enjoy!
