More about StoryCraft
Writing a story utilizing the Hero’s Journey concept is not complicated when each Stage of your story is guided with the Jarvis Method of story creation developed by John Jarvis, the creator of the original StoryCraft story-development engine. Here are the main Stages of the Jarvis Method, incorporated into the StoryCraft program:
Stage I. Story Concept
The initial story idea is turned into a concise, summarizing concept. Often neglected by writing teachers, the Story Concept is the basic premise that forms the foundation of every well-developed story.
Stage II. Story Category
The underlying purpose of the story is formulated. No other program so clearly encourages the writer to clarify the story’s “moral direction.” Every story ever written falls under one of two Categories: (1) Action stories, which focus primarily on the plot, the action; (2) Theme stories, which focus primarily on the learning experiences of the main character.
Stage III. Story Type
The overall pattern of the story is determined. Remarkably, every piece of high-quality fiction can be grouped into 22 fairly distinct Types (for example, “Capture and Escape Stories,” “Love Stories,” “Revenge Stories,” “Coming of Age Stories”). More basic than mere genres, these Types define the essence of the story and determine its overall pattern.
Stage IV. World Creation
The main characters, their helpers, and their Worlds are given life. The Goal of the Hero… The Hero’s personality…strengths…weaknesses… The Antagonist’s motivations… The Environment of the Hero… The Environment of the Antagonist… The Allies… The Shape-changers… The Gate-guardians… all are carefully developed.
Stage V. Story Creation
The structure steps for the particular Type of story are completed. Every great story shares 12 fundamental steps of structure–based on the Hero’s Journey pattern–each dependent upon the story’s Concept, Category, and Type. At this stage, each step is filled in with the Characters and Environments developed in the World Creation stage, adding plot twists an developing the story according roughly to its unique pattern.
