Lots of writers like to map out their stories, but deviantART member Appylon has created a beautiful structure map.

As you plan the events in your next short story or novel, make sure your story follows the “major arcs of a story” sketched out here: “Beginning, rising actions, twist, climax, falling action, conclusion.”  We’ve embedded his chart above–what do you think of the simple story map?

Instead of mapping your story on a black and white charts like the Hero’s JourneyKurt Vonnegut Story Grids or Freytag’s Pyramid, you can arrange your story along this beautiful piece of art. (Image via)
