Have you ever dreamed of writing a best-selling story? Just imagine writing a novel based on your character’s hero or heroine?
There are stories as diverse as Star Wars, Harry Potter, The Da Vinci Code, and The Color Purple along with most good action adventure, thriller, romance, fantasy and literary novels that use the classic mythical 12-part journey from zero to hero as their basic plot premise.
You must first establish parameters when telling a compelling story. Discover ways to start a story that will encourage sympathy from your reader. You should understand the heart and mindset of the hero or heroine.
A character must transcend his normal existence and be tested in any good story. Examine the hero’s character and motivation. The character’s separation from his ordinary world leads him to take the necessary plot to reach his goals.
How this metaphorical transformation can and must occur at the quarter point of the hero’s journey is the only way to ensure growth and eventual plot resolution. Knowing this will help you in all areas of fiction writing.
By the midpoint of the story both the hero and the writer must stretch the limits of their imagination. Writing should not be just a way of entertaining readers, but also a spiritual journey of enlightenment for the writer.
How does the transformation of the hero and the writer point at the crucial plot? Use simple guidelines to ensure the reader is transported by the story, its plot elements and the character.
The character’s ultimate reward is based on his ability to overcome the obstacles and achieve the goals set out at the beginning of the story. It is all part of the hero’s journey. Create an ending that leaves your reader gasping and begging for more.
