Now in a new clickable format. Which elements of storytelling will you recognize?
Stories make use of recurring ideas called “tropes” which repeat across genres and through time. The community at TVTropes.org catalogues these tropes in an enormous wiki, collecting examples for every imaginable trope with light-hearted glee.
I created the Periodic Table of Storytelling as an introduction to TVTropes; it’s an infographic that organizes the basic building blocks of storytelling into a familiar format. It’s my most popular work, with over 300,000 views, and now it’s available in a clickable format, so you can jump directly to any trope that piques your interest.
