Fleshing Out Your Story

Think of your story as someone does something because.

You should always be able to sum it up in that skeleton, fleshing it out as your story develops:
• Some guy starts a school in India because it’s a good thing to do.
• Sam Singh starts a school in India because he’s from there and wants to help the
community.
• Sam Singh, a retired top executive for Dupont Corporation, founds a revolutionary vocational school for girls in rural India because he sees the need for development in rural communities in a country where the elite and the “technological class” are moving fast and growing rapidly, often leaving the people – and potential – of rural communities behind.
