The Periodic Table of Storytelling
[click image to enlarge]

Stories, like atoms, are made of elements. Hilarious, familiar, twisted elements.

James, a student who goes by DawnPaladin on the site DeviantArt, pulled together common plots, settings and characters for this amazing Periodic Table of Storytelling. He based his nearly 200 elements on the work of television reference site TV Tropes.

Study the chart to find the building blocks of any good story, not just those made for broadcast. In telling the story of your brand, discover tried-and-true methods for drawing in the audience and conveying challenges and triumphs.
