Heroine's Journey worksheets available

Image
I’ve just published a revised edition of my Heroine’s Journey worksheet! It’s $2.99 on Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, and Smashwords.

Here’s more information about it:

I was asked to describe my Heroine’s Journey many times and I even taught several workshops on it at writer’s conferences, and so I decided to write a more detailed worksheet on the subject. I read about the Heroine’s Journey from several books and compiled what I learned here in one place. This is the same worksheet I myself use for my own novels.

Why the Heroine’s Journey? Sometimes the story arc of a female character will differ from the traditional Hero’s Journey because culture and time period will affect the character in accordance with her gender. This will create specific psychological differences in how a male and female character will respond to conflict in a story.

Joseph Campbell’s original book is based on the writings of psychoanalysts and the world myths. The Hero With a Thousand Faces is a psychological ana…

Synopsis worksheets available

I managed to update and add lots of new stuff to my Synopsis worksheets, and they are now available on Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, and Smashwords for only $0.99.

There are new examples in the worksheet, and I also added an Appendix. Here’s the info on the updated worksheet:

Has your fiction manuscript been rejected by literary agents or traditional publishing houses, and you're not sure why? Do you feel something's "off" with your novel, but you don't know what?

Sometimes the problem isn't the writing—it's the characterization or the overall story structure.

If you think this might be a problem with your manuscript, you don't want to pay for a freelance editor when you could fix those story elements yourself.

The Story Sensei’s Synopsis worksheet was designed as a way for fiction writers to not only write a synopsis, but also doctor their own manuscript by utilizing a large-scale, bird’s eye view of their stories. This different way of looking at y…

I now have a Story Sensei newsletter

Hey everybody! I'll be releasing my Story Sensei worksheets as ebooks in a few weeks. I'll be posting about them here on this blog, but if you'd also like emails sent to you when they're available, feel free to subscribe to my Story Sensei newsletter below.

I won't clog up your email Inbox--For the first few months, I'll send one email a month because I'll be releasing my worksheets about once a month, but then after that I will only send out emails when I have a new Story Sensei product or a sale. I tend to have new worksheets only about once a year.

Thanks a bunch!

Random Secret Generator

I got this from a Camp NaNoWriMo message and while I can’t use it right now, this would be a great tool for writer’s block while I’m plotting another manuscript. It’s a generator that gives you random secrets for your characters, to help you come up with ideas for deepening characterization or just getting out of a writing rut.

This website also has other character detail generators, to give you ideas when you’re creating a character. I checked out a few and they’re neat!

If you use this generator, let me know how you like it! I hope to use this at some point in the future.
