Jaws Structure scores 1,000+ views

On 8 September, the top post on The Story Department, Structure: Jaws broke through the 1,000 views barrier.
The simple analysis was posted over a year ago and the numbers only represent visits since we started logging the statistics earlier this year.

Of course I’m proud that we managed to attract this amount of traffic but I’m thrilled to see it’s quality traffic, as the average time on the page is no less than 3mins and 51secs.

In a way, this article really represents what The Story Department is about: story – and learnable techniques to improve your storytelling by focusing on structure.

Jaws is an amazing example of an entertaining movie with a profound Hero’s Journey underneath.  I hope my little structural breakdown does it justice.
