Hi, I’m Mike Dickson

I’m a story structure geek. Here’s how I can help you.

I’ve been studying story structure relentlessly since 2007 and have taught over 18,000 other writers the basics of story structure. But I haven’t stopped there! I spent over a year creating and building the mother of all thriller genre websites dedicated to story structure and outlining called

Throughout the course of creating, interviewing, reading, and studying story structure to launch Fiction Formula I’ve learned a lot about what will give a beginner writer the edge out of the gates to get them writing fiction as quickly as possible. You see, there is a ton to learn before a writer can even begin writing. Trust me. I’ve been down this path, and if you don’t know or aren’t sure about the correct way to build out a story, you’re no where near ready to sit down and write one. That is without wasting your time with massive editing later.

That’s why I created Thriller Story Structure 101, to help beginners skip as much of the learning curve as possible so you can understand story structure right from the start and get writing faster.

Thriller Story Structure 101 gives you everything you need to understand story structure from the start, including my personal help, a complete novel structure handout, and all of the slides in the course.
