NaNoWriMo Giveaway (Day 6): Breakdown of Storytelling Plots

In honor of National Novel Writing Month, I’m going to be offering free content each weekday in November to help all NaNoWriMo participants (and, really, anyone who is working on a novel).
Here is today’s giveaway:

Day 6: It’s fairly well-known that the plots of most successful works of fiction can be traced back to a handful of specific storytelling archetypes. These archetypes are persistent because they work. Use this worksheet from 20 Master Plots, Ronald B. Tobias’s classic writing reference, to identify the type of story you are telling and make sure that you’re including the recommended storytelling elements identified with the archetype in question. To get this freebie, just enter your e-mail address below.
