    All Writing is Rewriting

    As writers, we ground ourselves in the do’s and don’t’s of writing and study those who come before us. But, if you strip every fiction story ever told to the bare, bare bones, you’ll find that stories all move in a similar way. One of two things happens: Someone leaves town to go on an adventure, or a stranger comes to town. What does this mean to us as writers? Do we write the same stories or do we refine the same stories as time passes?

    • This topic looks like it may also want to reference The Hero's Journey (a nice summary available here: http://www.movieoutline.com/articles/the-hero-journey-mythic-structure-of-joseph-campbell-monomyth.html)What additional insight could this topic contribute to the discussion started by Joseph Campbell regarding storytelling? Maybe a look at other incarnations or types of journeys? – Kevin 4 years ago

    • Is there a contradiction between coming to town and leaving town? After all, when someone arrives someplace it's only because they've left somewhere else. – albee 4 years ago

    • To strengthen this article, I believe you could compare and contrast two stories, analyze their plots, and conclude that most plots are formulaic based on the two stories you compared and contrasted. – Sjohnida 4 years ago

    • For this topic I recommend looking at old myths and legends, I believe that it would be beneficial since myths were some of the first stories ever told and recorded – RSison93 4 years ago

    I actually only played a little bit of this game the other day. I recognized the title and came to take a look. As I was playing it, I noticed that the fonts were the characters names which made me laugh. I haven’t played far enough into the game to really understand everything you mentioned, but I liked what you have to say.

    This was encouraging to read for me as an aspiring writer. Currently, I have nothing published, but am learning so much at the university I attend. I’m also an editor on the journal at my university and fell in love with that process (despite how stressful it can get). Currently, I am learning the art of poetry. I won’t lie. I’m a rather terrible poet. Then again, I’m my own worst critic. However, in spite of my weaknesses, I’m willing to learn and persevere and in return, fall even more in love with writing and reading. I knew what I wanted to be when I was fourteen and now here I am, learning more and more about this craft. There is a strong presence at my campus of writers and artists which encourages all of us. I think, in order to be a writer, one must have the drive, passion, and willingness to take criticism and learn in order to improve.

    Ironically enough, I just re-read the, I guess you would call it, Epilogue chapters featuring Sasuke’s and Sakura’s daughter today. So, I saw this, and I thought, hey, this seems interesting (partly because I’m new). The analysis between the Uchiha and Senju is very interesting and I don’t think Naruto ever lost that thought of changing the shinobi world; we just didn’t get to see it. That’s the sad part, really. We don’t get to see how Naruto changed the shinobi world, only that he inspired so many. The ironic thing about his character is that Naruto fights against destiny and is yet at the same time the “Destined Child.” Your analysis is good, but you also have to consider that you don’t have all the facts of how Naruto changed the shinobi world because it does fast forward seven years into the future. We don’t know all of the facts. Just something to consider when you write another analysis of the show. On an end note, it makes me sad that we didn’t get to see how Naruto became Hokage or the things he did as Hokage.
