Screenwriting Structure Cards

Screenwriting Structure Cards

Visual Tools for Storytellers!


I’m a visual storyteller, and I learn best with visual materials. That’s why I created these custom outlining cards inspired by Joseph Campbell’s mythic structure of the Hero’s Journey.Simple Structure Cards 14 210x300 - Screenwriting Structure Cards

Each Screenwriting Structure Card represents a phase of the hero’s journey. These phases are common to the majority of American-crafted screenplays, and even episodic structure. I’ve included the title of the phase, as well as a short sentence or two describing that phase. The other half of the card is white space for the writer to create.

I’ve been using the small 3×5 cards to outline for years, and I love them, but I got tired of having to cross out sentences and constantly look at my messy cards. (I’m a little OCD).

Besides, it’s all text. No pictures. And I love having images to look at to help inspire me and keep me focused.
