The Reflection Method of 10X Story Magnification 


In great works of fiction, everything in your story is a mirror, reflecting the truths and distortions of the narrative, magnifying all things – characters, conflicts, themes – toward the total story experience. 

Here are but a few of the major reflections: 

  • Everything reflects the theme(s)
  • Everything reflects the main external conflict 
  • Everything reflects the main internal or emotional conflict 

Scour your story. Does everything reflect the greater truth of your story? How can you reflect even more? 

The more reflection, the more magnification.The more reflection, the more powerful the narrative beneath the narrative. 

The more reflection, the more potent and emotional the experience for the reader.
