Pixar recently shared their 22 Rules to Phenomenal Story Telling and PBJ Publishing was nice enough to take them and turn them into this great infographic. It’s no secret that in movies today, Pixar as a company is leading the pack with some of the best movies since they began with “Toy Story”. Forget that they do animated films that are geared towards kids; I know more adults that look forward to the newest Pixar film as much or more than their children. Heck, even critics who wanted to find something wrong with “Brave” this year could only really say that it was great, just not as great as “Wall-E” or “Toy Story 3”.
I thought that as avid readers yourselves you would enjoy these rules because it’s fun to give a reason as to why some stories might fail. And, as many of you are undoubtedly secret or not-so-secret wannabe writers, it cannot hurt to emulate a bit of what Pixar has done.
