Guys if you like stories or want to write stories or if you are just interested in learning why you spend like 90% of your life digesting the same kinds of narratives over and over and are too lazy to read Joseph Campbell, these essays by Dan Harmon are reaallly enlightening/good (delete for desired level of pretension).

Story Structure 101: Super Basic Shit

Story Structure 102: Pure, Boring Theory

Story Structure 103: Let’s Simplify Before Moving On

Story Structure 104: The Juicy Details

Story Structure 105: How TV is Different

Story Structure 106: Five Minute Pilots (this talks specifically about story structure in terms of the five minute comedy shorts for which these tutorials were written, but it’s still interesting)
