The mighty alphabet I love; the a to z organization. One good way and simple way to organize a story: the beginning is setting up the story, the 'call to action' place and who; then the 'threshold crossing; to the wise characters' three if you want; and the 'test; for the character(s); to the middle of the story; down into 'inner most dark cave'; and then the 'supreme ordeal'; coming to the end of the story; 'seizing of the wand' the gift of a treasure; to the closing of the story; the 'road to resurrection'. Thus the ABC for a story is a hero or heroine's journey: adventure, horror, romance or fantasy.
