Choices

Reading Time: 1 minute

You can view or print this picture of the story choices flowchart:

Use the flowchart to generate multiple outcomes at each turning point in your story. Check that your characters are making decisions which move the story onward. I have found this flowchart to be a good guard against passive main characters who simply react to external events. The format forces them to choose one path or another.

The link below allows you to download the chart for editing and adding your own stories to.
