Straw man

Taught by Dr. Buzz Lingo | Permalink | Tagged as straw man, | Comments »

A rough draft that is not intended to serve as the final version but can be used to generate further discussions and ideas.

As in...
Frank: "I put together a straw man proposal describing the first character Dorothy meets on the Yellow Brick Road."

Publisher: "Frank, it's inappropriate for Dorothy to meet an underwear model in a children's book, but I like the concept of having no brain. Let's work together to develop this idea."

Actually, this definition sucks. Let me add my own. You can also share "straw man" with a friend or share it on Twitter.


Make sense? Let's discuss.
