Here’s a good little case study, taken from my supposedly short (this turned out to be over 8 pages of feedback) $50 Conceptual Kick-Start analysis service.
As usual, props to the courageous writer who consented to share this. Actually, she was delighted and enthusiastic when she found out there was a clear direction to take this, and she’s excited to hear your thoughts.
To tempt you further… this is a classic ghost story, with significant upside potential. But for that to happen, certain things must be rethought and revamped.
Once again, this is a case of a muddy line between a proposed concept and the premise that springs from it, with one or both suffering from that lack of clarity. An easy fix, when viewed through a new lens.
It’s also a cautionary tale on how easy it is to drift into another lane — often on-coming traffic — when the story proceeds without a clear blueprint and compellingly dramatic spine.
You are invited to weigh in. I hope you get something out of this, as it’s a case of a perfectly good story with a perfectly common slippery slope… leading to a perfectly doable revision.
