"This course outlines the different elements of a story (character, plot, acts, etc.) and focuses on these different elements for idea generation. I found this course useful for generating further ideas for a novel I am writing, but I think this course would also be useful for people writing screenplays as both novels and screenplays are examined. A very useful course!"
