So there’s this video by Kurt Vonnegut that presents a unique view on stories.  Vonnegut’s approach suggest that stories have shapes based on well being and time.   There are certain shapes people like stories to follow:  No matter where the main character or situation starts there has to be a down fall and then uprising.
