The shape of stories

I was trawling my twitter feed. Something which I should do much more often. Someone had shared this wonderful representation of Kurt Vonnegut’s (rejected!?) thesis on the shape of stories. Not only is it a beautiful observation of different storytelling forms, but it is also neatly explained with the aid of Maya Eilam’s graphic design skills.
