  2. Appeal to the emotions
  3. Show, don’t tell
  4. Know what’s at stake
  5. Plot flows from premise
  6. Open with tension
  7. Keep it moving
  8. Up the ante
  9. Highlight the turning point
  10. End with tension resolved

I was at this event and remember the comic book style training that Gordon displayed as an example. I was just wondering if anyone had any screen shots of this. I would like to do a similar concept for an elearning piece…Just hoping someone might have this!!
