I am releasing this early because I want to publish the Episodes as I watch them to see if my predictions are correct and I’m a few episodes behind.
These are the 5 Commandments of Storytelling as outlined by Shawn Coyne in his book The Story Grid: What good Editors Know. These commandments can be found in all stories that really work.
Anne Lister’s visits Ann Walker at the Lake while Walker is with her cousin.
Walker’s relative catches them in the act of making out

A note on Value shifts. Scenes need to turn in order for a story to work, if it doesn’t turn in value then nothing is really happening. See the following two articles on value shift in scenes and stories at www.storygrid.com:
+/++ attracted to physical
The two women make out and have sex
+/++ more and more successful
More successful dealings with coal.
Obligatory scenes and Conventions are expectations the reader or watcher have when they watch specific genres.
In both the Society and Love department, I anticipate some change in value to happen soon.
For more information about the Story Grid, go to the Story Grid Webpage to find free videos and articles on how to implement the methodology.
For an example of how these techniques are used, read Jane Austin’s The Pride and the Prejudice with annotations by Shawn Coyne.
