Plan, organize and collaborate on your stories with the StorytellerOS Notion template.
Are you having a hard time planning your story? Are your unorganized notes preventing you from finishing your manuscript?
Originally I built this template to help me write a screenplay. After using it to plan my story, I realized that it could be used more generally because all stories follow basic principles like: the Archetypes, The Hero's Journey, the 3 act structure and so on.
Stories are inherently conflict based, and require problem solving. By creating an overview and the relations between different elements in the story, makes it easier to recognize opportunities for advancing a story, subverting a trope, or introducing a new plot device.
Who is this template for?
- Creative writers
Beginners will find the structure helpful when planning their stories. Seasoned writers may find it useful to consolidate all their notes in one place and/or collaborate with others easily.
