Periodic Table of Storytelling by *ComputerSherpa "is an incredibly clever use of the old fashion periodic table but put in a way that storytelling enthusiasts can relate to and understand. There’s a science to creativity after all." (Suggester's words)

The little "story molecule" examples at the bottom that put the symbols into practice are just fun little icing on the cake."
