More From the Gap


If you did not see the preceding post that explains what it means to write from the gap, go here first.


Now that you have a basic idea of what it means to write from the gap, watch the video below. Robert McKee explains how to use the gap when writing beats in a scene, writing scenes, sequences, acts, and the story climax.





For more about Robert McKee and what he has to offer those who write for the page, stage or screen, go here. Besides his book, he offers seminars, an e-zine, and a writer’s practicum, all of which I’ve found to be extremely useful.


If you are not clear on the differences between beats, scenes, sequences and acts, get Robert McKee’s book Story. I can’t recommend it enough.
