Monster Writing Guides
Write your novel, find your community
Novel Structure Workbook
How to Plot and Not Get Stuck
21 distinct beats to guide you through your novel. More than just the the inflexible Hero’s Journey, the Monster Workbook takes you through the most popular character arc—a positive one with a (mostly) happy ending—to maximize your book’s emotional satisfaction. With the aid of step-by-step explanations, examples, and analysis, you’ll understand how and why the structure works. And also how it can be broken and still work.
The book is enhanced with downloads, including printable and editable PDFs, a Scrivener template, and a NaNoWriMo calendar.
