A Tip from Jim Butcher

I was hopping the web when I found this on someone's blog, quoting Jim Butcher, author of the Harry Dresiden series. It's a simple question to help clarify one's story.

*WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS*, *YOUR PROTAGONIST* *PURSUES A GOAL*. But will he succeed when *ANTAGONIST PROVIDES OPPOSITION*?

That's an outline I can live with.
