The Perfect 10:
1. Character is everything - make people want to spend time with them.
2. Get the story going - hit the ground running.
3. Medium and format - choose the right form for your story - whether it be radio, tv, film or theatre.
4. Coherence - know your world and story. Authenticity is key.
5. Emotion - make sure your stories matter on a human level.
6. Surprise - cliches kill a story!
7. Structure is key - start at the right place, and make sure you keep the energy up for the ending.
8. Exposition and expression - exposition is the biggest problem they have!
9. Passion - does it get under your skin?
10. Be yourself - have an original, distinct voice.
