Breaking Down The Hero’s Journey Plot Structure (tips for fantasy & sci-fi writers) — She’s Novel

The hero’s journey! My favorite! Wait until you read this! ❤ Click on the highlighted link below to learn more. ❤

Hello there, writers! Today, I am so excited to talk about one of my favorite writing topics: plot structure. Now I know that probably doesn’t sound all that exciting, but if there’s anything that’s truly going to set you up for success–especially when it comes time to edit–it’s this. So if you often have problems with plot holes and pacing issues, plot structure is going to be your saving grace.Today in particular, we’re going to talk about the plot structure that I use most often in my own writing: The Hero’s Journey. This plot structure is a true classic, used most often in fantasy and science fiction.

      1. I started reading. And reading. And thinking, and then I said, “how long is this?” It’s long. Detailed. In a good way. So I bookmarked it to read later, when I can take notes.

        Thanks, Ms. Threading! 😀

  1. I have the steps of the hero’s journey as headings for my chapters. Of course, not every step appears in every story, but the hero’s journey is a good starting point for plotting — or, for those who write first, plot later, a good way to check what we’ve written.
