An A.I. Says There Are Six Main Kinds of Stories
Sam Hart
  1. Rags to Riches (rise) 2. Riches to Rags (fall) 3. Man in a Hole (fall then rise) 4. Icarus (rise then fall) 5. Cinderella (rise then fall then rise) 6. Oedipus (fall then rise then fall) Their focus was on the emotional trajectory of a story, not merely its plot.
