Cool Blog Quote for Writers: What Story Really Is

"...story is internal, not external. A story is not about the plot, which is why external story-structure models, including the over-revered Hero’s Journey, often lead writers far astray. A story is about how the plot affects the protagonist."

  2. This is so true. Story is the emotion. It's not the plot. :)
