Multi-Strand Narrative (How To Manage)

#screenwriting #filmmaking #writing #screenplay

Multi-strand narrative is easy to manage if you consider that each is an arc.

Thinking about it this way, many stories are multi-strand narratives.

For example, in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana has an arc and so does Marion.

While it is possible for the multi-strands to not connect, it is common for them to do so.

Usually, multi-strands are linked overtly or covertly (through the story theme or the story goal).

As in all story, the key to understanding the process of multi-strands is the understanding of arc. Learn about this in the 2000+ stage hero's journey at
