This template is more pure to the Volger Method. I created this one to already have the folder structure in place to help with plotting. it also includes a folder structure for a romantic sub plot that allows you to interweave into the hero's journey plot line. hope you like it. let me know what you think. it has allowed me to really put the Hero's journey into practice!!

This is a really great theme/template. I've already imported the novel I was working on to incorporate these new settings. I will be using this as my main template from now on.

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for making this available...

So, thank you!

Will

Is this template only available for Mac? I'm currently using the test Beta Scrivener for Windows, but this template sounds just like the tool for me. I have 52,000+ words for my project and the structure is giving me problems.

Thanks for any information

The download file is actually a project file (not specifically a template file) so it should work just find on Windows, though it may be missing a few things aspects that are Mac-only features (doesn't look like there are any aside from some binder icons). It'll unpack as a .scriv folder just like your other Scrivener projects, and you can either work from it directly (after moving it to the location you want to keep it) or duplicate it so you have a "blank" copy of the project to use as future templates. (Ultimately you should be able to save it as a template yourself in Windows, but at the moment in beta 023 this feature isn't working properly.)

Side note, the zip that was uploaded seems to have been created while the original project was open, so you may get a warning message about it being open on another computer. If you just downloaded it, it's obviously fine to use, so just click through that.

Thank you to laron0923 and MimeticMouton for your help :) I think this will be very helpful to me. I feel like someone just pointed out the yellow brick road. I will be taking my nearly 52,000 words and tweaking my organization for my current work-in-progress. I can see that a previously unfinished fantasy work can benefit as well. Off to see the wizard!

I'm a newbie to Scrivener. I love this template as I try to follow Vogler's method and have his DVD's, etc. How do I transfer this template to my Scrivener? I need a tutor. Ugh! I'm sorry if this is a really stupid question. Anyone willing to walk me through the process?
Thanks!

The template linked above is a regular Scrivener project, so once you download it you'll just need to extract the project fro the .zip file (you should be able to just double-click the download and have Archive Utility open it for you) and then double-click the .scriv file to open it. You can work on it directly there or you can save it as a template yourself so that it will appear in the options in the New Project panel and you can easily reuse it for future projects. To do that, once you have it open, choose File>Save As Template, then enter the title and description and choose a category and icon for it if you want. Once you click OK there, you'll be able to choose this template for new projects, just like you can choose Novel, Short Story, etc. You can trash the original downloaded template file at that point, since when you use Save As Template, Scrivener makes a copy of it to your Application Support folder and doesn't need the original file any longer.

Hi
This is a really great work.
Can you allow me to upload your template translated to spanish?
It will be great, because people like me (that don't speak english very good) will enjoy it.
Thank you
