Sir Rolen proclaimed, ” Before this day is done your head will be on a pike, and your people will submit to the king’s rule”

” Ha! Typical Westerner. When today’s sun sets my blade will be stained in your blood, and your king will cower in fear.” replied Rōgu Akiyoshi.

Plot: the Hero’s Journey

Daily Prompt #33: Considering yourself as a character

Guess what?  There’s going to be a book written about you!  What’s the title?  
Come up with at least one idea that you think each of the following people would suggest.

* Yourself
* Your mom (or dad or guardian: your choice)
* Your best friend
* Your worst enemy (or someone who doesn’t really care for you or someone who doesn’t really know you)
* Your pet (or your favorite toy or possession)

Take seven minutes.

As you develop your pieces of fiction, you need to closely consider the plot of your story. Aside from the traditional mountain peak plotline, another way of checking to make sure your plot is interesting is by testing it against the hero’s journey.

Using the diagram provided, take a story or movie you know and see how it fits this plot. Write the plot down, either directly on the handout or in your notebook.

Use the remainder of class to work on your story.
