Writing Journal Worksheet – The World at Large (PDF)

This Preptober worksheet will help you gain perspective on your plot, character, and story world.

You can this worksheet in several ways:

  1. Think through a problem top-down (general to specific).
  2. Think through a problem bottom-up (specific to general).
  3. Move from a broad to a more detailed story outline.
  4. Think about a character’s impact on their world.
  5. Think about an event’s impact on the story world.
  6. Generate a quick overview of your story world (macrocosm > microcosm).
  7. Describe your story world’s physical geography.
  8. Trace a character’s psychological, spiritual, material or narrative “fall”.

View the “levels” figuratively or literally, depending on your subject.

Don’t forget, if you need more help with your plot or character, the Lady Writers League‘s online writing courses are currently open for enrolment.

Last week’s #writingjournalchallenge worksheet on Instagram…

This week’s worksheet is inspired by one of my FAVOURITE quotes from a NaNo pep talk: 💕“Think about what made you fall in love with your work-in-progress in the first place.” – Meg Cabot When the honeymoon period is over, and we’re knee-deep in the complexities of a project (be it a novel or a relationship), it’s easy to look at our present situation and wonder why we got ourselves into this mess. It’s times like that you need a worksheet like this. Spill all of your enthusiasm and early energy about your idea into this page. But remember to “reactivate” it later! ✒️ #writingjournalchallenge #stationerylove #fountainpen #amwriting #printable #stationeryaddict #penandpaper #nano #nanowrimo #nanowrimo2017 #preptober
