Episodic Three Phase (part 1)

We’ve covered the seven seasons – the method for structuring a long form story.

We’ve covered the cubbies – the method for structuring a short form story.

Now, we’re taking a quick look at…

Episodic Three Phase

The method for structuring a mini form story.

A “mini form” story would be a single episode of a T.V. series, or a single chapter in a book, a single issue of a comic book, or even a single scene in a film.

Why call it “episodic three phase?”

Because by and large, this structure is used for writing an episode of a T.V. series.

The structure goes like this:

Start with a “premise.” And develop it through three phases:

  • Exposition
  • Execution
  • Resolution

Exposition:

Sets up the premise. This first phase establishes what the premise is. Usually by way of some kind of “catalyst.”

Execution:

Plays out this premise. Usually by way of some specific “methodology.”

Resolution:

Brings the premise to a close. Usually by way of some kind of “conclusion.”

That’s the basic idea. Take a premise and move it through these three phases.

Exposition, Execution, Resolution.
Catalyst, Methodology, Conclusion.

Now what kind of premise can you use?

There are five main types of premises:

We’ll talk about the specifics of each of these in a moment, but these are the basics to get you started.
