Max Brand’s formula for generating story

… I think I’ve written this down here before, but just in case I haven’t:

Take two main characters.

First a good character on his way down.

Then a bad character on his way up.

Make their paths cross. Preferably a head-on collision.

This is different from Lester Dent’s formula, which goes basically: change things up every 1500 words.
