I modified the template uploaded here: viewtopic.php?t=2815

I changed the folder names and added descriptions according to this wikipedia article:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero's_journey

If everyone agrees that it's okay to share this modification of nadinbrzezinski's template, and someone will tell me where to find the template file, I'll upload it here.

The way I use a template like this: I create a new project with it, then open a project based on my own templates, then drag and drop the folders over to my manuscript.

I usually have the latest Scrivener and Scapple versions.
Let me copy/paste the version from the About box, and I will add it to my signature.

I've tried a number of approaches to install this template, but have failed :-(

Has anybody had success at installing this hero's journey template?

Thank you in advance,
Dave

The original template is from 2007. I don't think it works with the newest Scrivener, but may be I'm wrong.

That's very cool of you. A couple of notes about the template:

• You're missing a beat at the beginning. I guess it would be beat zero - The Ordinary World. Hero's Journeys generally show us the world in which the Hero is living, before the call to adventure comes.

• Just a note for those who want to use the template who haven't read HERO WITH A THOUSAND FACES or any of the writing books based on it -- the order, structure and size of these steps is very fluid. Campbell points out in the book that whole epics have been written about a single element on the list. (The Odyssey is an epic about The Return Home.) Also, these structures can repeat in a story. There are several stories that have multiple calls to adventure and refusals.

I strongly recommend Chris Vogler's book.

Save your empty project as a template, then you can upload it in a new post.
