Write Stories Based on the Hero’s Journey with StoryCraft Classic Software
StoryCraft is a line of software that allows you to utilize the hero’s journey theme to write any kind of story, whether for publication or just self-expression. perhaps to communicate an idea or even resolve traumas and other life issues. A story-creation program that comes with history’s greatest writing coaches built right into it, StoryCraft is designed specifically for guiding writers – and non-writers – through the entire process of writing complete stories, from short stories to screenplays and novels.
Along with the writing guru John Jarvis, I helped design StoryCraft in 1996, and through all its versions right up to the present day, it remains one of the most respected story-writing software programs on the market. The software utilizes the Hero’s Journey concept, which Mr. Jarvis incorporated and adapted into the “Jarvis Method,” to allow anyone to create a story, biography, novel or screenplay. (My work with Mr. Jarvis on different versions of StoryCraft over the past 20 years is a big part of what inspired me to create this Hero Wisdom Store and to promote the many ways that people can improve their lives through the prism of the hero’s journey.)
Beginning with the story idea, the software guides you through each step of conceiving, developing and writing your story. And because it utilizes the hero’s journey archetypes common to all great stories and myths, it is ideal for expressing every kind of story, be it fantasy and adventures, love stories, coming of age stories, revenge stories, mysteries, and even stories based on your own life experience.
