Tools for Plotting
I recently went to a writing class. The instructor handed out a simplified “Hero’s Journey” plot diagram. I like the hero’s journey plot scheme/template, i.e. Normal World, Call to Adventure, Refusal of the Call…all the way to Supreme Ordeal (climax of the story) and Return (denouement).
But there are other (read: simpler) tools out there. What have you found useful in plotting your stories? Or is planning a dirty word to you?
Here is a link to some plot templates for anyone who is interested. http://www.darcypattison.com/writing/plot/29-plot-templates/
