Theme

In Story Engineering, Larry Brooks lists some possible themes:

  • love and hate
  • the folly of youth
  • heaven and hell
  • the minefield of marriage
  • wealth and poverty

What do you answer when asked what your story is about? Do you give a plot-based answer? Is your answer like something on the list above? Or is it a blend of both?
