McKee on story

by on 26/10/09 at 8:00 am

In story, we concentrate on that moment, and only that moment, in which a character takes an action expecting a useful reaction from his world, but instead the effect of his action is to provoke forces of antagonism. The world of the character reacts differently than expected, more powerfully than expectred, or both.–Robert McKee, Story: Substance, Structure, Style, and the Principles of Screenwriting
