Are You and Innie or an Outie?

After listening to all six hours of 'Story' by Robert McKee I have discovered that I am an innie. Of course, Mr. McKee is not referring to your belly button, but your writing style. In writing, like belly buttons, it is better to be an innie, than an outie. Being an innie allows you to discover what works in less time, teaches you to write more than you need, throw out what you don't need, and search until you find the true 'gems' in your story. If you want to find out more about writing as an innie or an outie, check out Books by Robert Mckee and discover your writing style.

The reason one writes isn't the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say. F. Scott Fitzgerald
