What is a Three Story Method Diagnostic?

A Diagnostic is…

  • A detailed, thoughtful read of your entire manuscript
  • A detailed analysis of your scene or story covering the essential elements of fiction, including
    • genre
    • character development
    • character wants and needs
    • world building
    • showing versus telling
    • passive versus active voice
    • sentence, grammar, and mechanics
    • The Three Story Method’s Conflict, Choice, and Consequence

Once it’s all done, you get …

  • A completed V.E. Griffith Scene or Story Rubric
  • Your manuscript with in-line comments and tracked changes
  • A 60-minute Zoom call to discuss your findings
