The 5 Point Story Mapping Method isn’t a plotting device. It’s not a new series of beats or a reworking of classic plot tools. The Waypoint Method aims to get deep under the skin of your story so that you understand more than just what happens to your characters. It’s about setting yourself up to succeed, understanding your own motivations as well as your character’s, and using your time and creative energy in the best possible ways.
After a decade of publishing, editing, and evaluating what is and isn’t working in fiction, the core of an author’s story can make or break the final product. Underneath the plot and the setting, what is your story saying to the world?
Below hair and eye color, what does your protagonist need? What do they fear? In this guide, we’ll be digging deep into the origins of your story and your character and help you build your plot around that central idea.
This DIY Workbook is best for authors who:
- Are sitting down to start a new project
- Want to work through a character-driven approach to story
- Are plotters looking to dig deep into story before sitting to plot
- Are discovery writers looking to arm themselves with more tools before writing
