The Two Process Themes

It's like there are two themes in a story.

  1. The springboard theme. This gets you going at the beginning.
  2. The deep dive theme. This is what you discover the story is really about after you've written a finished draft. Often times, it's spotted by someone else. If you're lucky they'll read your early draft and let you know what it is.
