Summary

Thanks to this guided storytelling course you will learn how to create and structure a story from beginning to end, following the archetypes of storytelling, the so-called "hero's journey".
 
If you have a book in your drawer, if you are missing some incipits or some narrative features, this is the path for you. You will learn to create blocks to fill in order to make your story compelling and exciting, to characterize the protagonists, antagonists and secondary characters following a functional narrative scheme that has been used in many occasions, from TV series to novels and ancient literature.
 
We're talking about "archetypal" narrative forms that can easily adapt to your idea, whatever it may be. When writing a story it's crucial to have a skeleton that keeps the narrative solid: today we're going to learn how to do it in order to help you finish your book or screenplay.

    A guide to the British Royal Navy in the Napoleonic Age for fans of the Aubrey–Maturin series: “A gem of a book” (Minneapolis Star Tribune).   What is a sand-grouse, and where does it live? What are the medical properties of lignum vitae, and how did Stephen Maturin use it to repair his viola? Who is Admiral Lord Keith, and why is his wife so friendly with Captain Jack Aubrey?   More than any other contemporary author, Patrick O’Brian knew the past. His twenty Aubrey–Maturin novels, beginning with 1969’s Master and Commander, are distinguished by deep characterization, heart-stopping naval combat, and an attention to detail that enriches and enlivens his stories. In this revised edition of A Sea of Words, Dean King and his collaborators dive into Jack Aubrey’s world. In addition to their invaluable glossary, the authors provide essays on the age’s politics, naval medicine, and the many ships that Jack Aubrey sailed, sighted, and fought against. For both the curious fan and the O’Brian aficionado, A Sea of Words is an invaluable tome on the British Royal Navy.
