The Hero's Journey: A Writer's Tool
I'm always looking for helpful writing tools on the internet. No doubt many writers already know about this one, but I didn't, so I thought I'd share. I think it will be especially helpful for anyone wanting an edge while they write a novel in one month (that's 50,000 words) during Nanowrimo. There's a web site which has a basic "formula" called the hero's journey and is a great way to plot out a story you are planning to write. Although none of us wants to be formulaic in our writing, I believe the greatest benefit of the site is that it helps a writer recognize the milestones necessary for a good story. Check it out, and enjoy!
