Why Stakes Should Be Primal
Master Cat Cory Milles contrasts The Dark Knight with Batman v. Superman to demonstrate the power of stakes that are personal. Give your audiences “moral questions” that they can relate to — and will care about.
Cory Milles has been teaching writing for over a decade. In his spare time, he writes Young Adult novels that seek to capture the power of story to transform his readers. When he’s not writing, teaching, or listening to his collection of movie scores, he can usually be found reading more on the craft of writing. He is an editor of Save the Cat!® Goes to the Indies and the author of New Miller's Grove, Legacy, Paradox, Redemption and Reboot.
