I was taught to know this. I was taught I should follow it. I never did, and I never do. And you know what? It seems to work out.

LOL  I was already writing novels and doing this when I first saw this graph.  I was doing it naturally, without the graph.  I just thought it might help someone else.  So I understand if you didn't really need it.  It's kind of the basics.

So I was looking for details about writing death like physically, would they really say their dramatic last words, make choking sounds then simply fall over? But while looking for something like that I found a small but very good guide to writing a death scene. Though it doesn't get into the physical like I was looking for, I would say using it would definitely improve your death scenes.

(And if anyone knows or finds the type of physical death guide I was talking about I would appreciate it if you would post it here or show it to me thanks :detect:

So it was mentioned to me that I should post this here, since it is a very helpful writers tool. :)  It is a website called Springhole, my cousin runs it and offers all kinds of awesome resources to help people better their writing skills, come up with characters, and more. :D

Whathttp://channel101.wikia.com/wiki/Story_Structure_101:_Super_Basic_Shit
Why: Created by Dan Harmon, a creator and major contributor to Community and Rick and Morty, distills Joseph Campbell's Hero with a thousand faces breakdown of story structure into what he calls a "story egg". The six or so parts may take something like half an hour to read back to back but the (admittedly) simplified manner in which he tackles plot/story structure is useful

I'm not sure how helpful this will be, but perhaps some vocab might help in naming threads.

Adventure: a trip with no destination

Quest: a trip to accomplish a task

Journey: when the trip is more important than the destination

Ex: I wasn't sure what to do next, so I went on adventure outside.

      I must make a quest to the bathroom

      To do some thinking, I take journey's down the hall.

(Not sure if this was already on here; casually too lazy to check before posting...)

This puppy has saved me on so many levels be it writing papers or writing my book. Haven't used it quite yet here, but the day will come...anywho, this link helps SO MUCH if you're trying to write, and want to use a certain word, but you CAN'T REMEMBER THE WORD. It's sooooo helpful.
