Writing About the Mind

Excerpted from The Zen of Story Structure

The Mind Class describes a fixed attitude. This can be a bias, prejudice or even a “positive” opinion about anything at all. The key is that the attitude is fixed, meaning it is accepted as a given and not reevaluated. Often the Mind Class is represented by a group of people who share a common bias for or against something.
