Ever since the Story Grid Editor Roundtable podcast started three years ago, we’ve been asked to apply the Story Grid method to a novel. Well, this is it! This season we’re doing a full Story Grid macro analysis of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. We’ll review the Editor’s Six Core Questions and look at each of the acts in detail.

We’re taking a break from posting episodes to get ready. We’ll return December 9, to discuss the Editor’s Six Core Questions of Gone Girl

 

 

Your Writers’ Room editors are Valerie Francis, specializing in stories by, for and about women, and Leslie Watts who helps fiction and nonfiction writers craft epic stories that matter.

About the Author

Leslie Watts is a certified Story Grid editor, writer, and podcaster. She’s been writing for as long as she can remember: from her sixth-grade magazine about cats to writing practice while drafting opinions for an appellate court judge. When the dust settled after her children were born, she launched www.Writership.com to help writers unearth the treasure in their manuscripts. She believes writers become better storytellers through practice, and that editors owe a duty of care to help writers with specific and supportive guidance to meet reader expectations and express their unique gifts in the world.

Leslie and Valerie, your voices are the first ones I hear when I wake up in most mornings – I have really enjoyed Season 1, thanks for your efforts! I find it quite an interesting contrast listening to two very different voices, analysis and styles.
Now I’m going to buy Gone Girl and prepare to follow along with you. It’s a movie I’ve been considering watching but now you’ve given me a very good reason to read the book. Thank you – ML

Glad to see this continuing. I have this and Leslie’s Writership podcast on my Stitcher favorites, and refer to both while outlining my WIP. Keep up the great work!
