The Billionaire -Writer’s Secret by gurpreet singh
During a career spanning twenty-five years of novel, film, and television work, I’ve two major tools most valuable: the yogic chakras for characterization, and Joseph Campbells model of the Heros Journey for plot structure.
These are not random choices, nor were they selected because of the many intelligent and thoughtful essays on their relationship to successful film or world myth.
Rather, they are important because they create a connection between the inner world of the writer, and the external world of the finished workand the reader.
A plot structure is nothing more than a tool for organizing events in temporal sequence. While there are more such structures than there are professional writers, few of them meet what thousands of students consider a critical test: are they actually easy to use and apply? A simple tool, however limited, can be of greater use than a complicated tool that requires years to master. Remember: you will achieve real quality in your writing only by mastering your basics.
The Heros Journey, extracted from thousands of years of world mythology, has the advantage of actually mimicking the path of life itself. The three act structure does not. After alllife isnt divided into three, or five, or eight acts. Such divisions can be useful tools, but they should never be mistaken for some kind of truth about existence. In comparison, note this interpretation (there are others) of the steps of the Heros Journey, and to explain them, well look at the first Star Wars movie, Episode IV, A New Hope:
1) Hero Confronted With A Challenge. Come with me, Luke; learn the ways of the Force. This is pretty clear, right? There has to be a challenge, or a beckoning, or the character wont begin to changeand all great writing is about change.
2) Hero Initially rejects the challenge, I promised Uncle Owen Id work on the moisture evaporators. A real challenge, one that can provoke real change, will be frightening and exciting. A character will usually have some reservations.
3) Hero accepts the challenge. Lukes aunt and uncle are killed, freeing him from his oath. If your character doesnt accept the challenge, there is no storyunless the story is about the consequences of not accepting responsibility.
4) The Road of trials. Traveling to the desert town and cantina, getting on Han Solos spaceship, traveling to other planets, etc. This is the section where locations and sequence interact. The character travels, learns, commits actions that force inter-action with the environment, and the environment responds positively or negatively, with greater and greater stakes as the story proceeds.
5) Gaining Allies and Powers. Luke meets Han Solo, and Chewbacca, and Obi-Wan, and Princess Leia. He learns of the Force, and the use of Light Sabers, and how to fly and fight and rescue princesses. If your character doesnt have to grow in order to resolve the problem, you may have chosen the wrong problem or character!
6) Initial Confrontation with Evil, and defeat. Obi-Wans death. Or possibly the disastrous attack on the Death Star. One is private and emotional, the other spectacular and physical.
7) Dark Night of the Soul. The moment of greatest weakness. Luke begins to believe he cannot win, and everything he loves will die.
8) Leap of Faith. Trust your Feelings, Luke. The leap of Faith is always faith in one of three things: faith in self, faith in your companions, or faith in a higher power. In Star Wars it is all three! This may be the only time in the history of cinema that this was true, and helps to explain why George Lucas is a billionaire.
9) Confront Evilvictorious. The Death Star blows up.
10) Student Becomes the Teacher. Luke is presented with medals, which establish him as a role model.
The above ten steps are not some cookie-cutter pattern. They are the combined world wisdom about the path of life itself, the process we go through in achieving any worthwhile goal. There will be fear. There will be defeat. We will need to gain new skills and friends and partners. We must be clear on our acceptance of goals and responsibility. We must have faith. And ultimately, if we have struggled, and learned, and sacrificed, and moved through our fearwe learn and grow and succeed. And then we teach others. This is the pattern of life, and any time you organize information and events into a pattern even vaguely reminiscent of this, the human nervous system, worldwide, will recognize it as story.
It is NOT some kind of cure-all for bad story tellers. What these ten steps are is something analogous to the eighty-eight keys of a piano. Understand the emotional and life significance of each step, and then play them as your developed instincts dictate. Make your own kind of music. The pattern has worked for about thirty thousand years. It will work for you, too.

Celebrities Are Not Like You and I
As a society, America is quite the celebrity obsessed culture. We share an ever increasing appetite for all news and reports related to our favorite entertainers. Magazines like In Touch Weekly, The National Enquirer and Star Magazine have impressive sales figures as readers fight to get their hands news about both the personal and professional lives of those within the entertainment community.
No matter how incidental the news, readers of celebrity tomes such as In Touch Weekly Magazine and viewers of popular entertainment programs such as Entertainment Tonight, readers and viewers respectively continue to tune in. With so much information available about the lives of our favorite stars it is easy to believe that we know them personally. We look at them as a friend and tend make certain allowances for sometimes odd and even dangerous behavior. We put them up on a pedestal and believe that they are not to be judged by the same standards as the rest of us, sometimes with funny results.
My Mom Named Me Rainbow and My Sister Sonnet
The impending birth of an A list celebrities child can reach epic proportions. Bidding wars often break out amongst magazines like In Touch Weekly to publish the first pictures of the darling newborn. We wait with baited breath to hear the name that our favorite stars have blessed their little ones with. Traditional names such as Sarah, Christopher or Susan will never do. Instead we have names like Ocean, Banjo, Seven, and Puma. Should we wait for the name Loser? I fear the celebrity progeny will one day get even. I can see it now, the tell all book hits the shelf listing a number of abuses starting with the stupidest name known to creation.
Officer I Did Not Know the Speed Limit Applied to Me
In Touch Weekly and other celebrity gossip sources includes pictures and stories of stars that have somehow broken the law. We shake our heads when a well known movie star is in the middle of traffic raving about aliens, or intoxicated while driving down the highway in the wrong direction. Often the prognosis is exhaustion from working too hard. To be fair, you would be exhausted too if you earned millions of dollars for working only a couple of months, traveling the globe, and had people to see to your every wish and desire. Being a celebrity is really hard work.
I Think You will be my First Husband
Relationship breakups and divorces can make celebrity weekly magazines giddy. Readers bet on how long a Hollywood relationship will last, or how long before the divorce takes place before the wedding. The idea that those who are creative should not have to make a commitment to anyone or anything is for the sole purpose of excusing celebrities for their broken marriages, fractured families or for the complete mess they make of their personal lives.
No what they name their children, or how much trouble they get into it is okay. They forgive us for completely invading their privacy while we forgive them for being eccentric.
