How to structure a story or a feature film in 12 steps using the Intuitive Screenwriting Wheel as an archetypal matrix behind the hero’s journey.
The main difference between the hero’s progression on the wheel and the hero’s journey (Campbell, Vogler) is that the wheel suggests that every step is not just a single point in time,
but is a certain motion, a conflict between two archetypes,
a story in itself… a trigger that is built into the step.
The wheel uses archetypes in both an inclusive and conflicting way at the same time.
I believe that just by being aware of the dynamics behind each step, we, writers, come closer to understanding (and cracking) our stories, that are, by definition, changes in motion.
