You know how important it is for a character to have internal integrity – and how difficult that can sometimes be. Here’s a helpful system from classical myths.
Warrior, Monk, Scientist, Magician, Lover – find and develop the best ArchePath for your characters, regardless of gender or age. The ArchePaths are Paths a person follows, a style of being, a type of approach to life. Any archetype can be on any of the Paths.
  • Learn the hopes, fears, strengths, weaknesses, symbols, and styles of each
  • Get the 3 Levels for each: beginner, adept, expert
  • Explore the 3 Approaches of each: mental, emotional, synthesized
  • Build conflict by pitting characters on the same Path against each other
  • Juxtapose characters on different Paths to the best effect
  • Use the possibilities for growth and change: that all-important character arc

These 5 classic ArchePaths are valuable profiles for creating dynamic, believable characters and enriching your stories with these powerful mythic paradigms.
  1. What are the ArchePaths, how are they different from Archetypes?
  2. 3 levels of each ArchePath
  3. 3 approaches to each ArchePath
  4. Warrior
  5. Monk/Ascetic
  6. Scientist

I have taken good courses online, however, Pamela Jaye Smith's "ARCHEPATHS – 5 Character Paradigms for Any Story" is, by far, the best one yet. Better than advertised, I think. The content was excellent, useful and well taught.

The lessons were masterfully laid out and the assignments were clear and concise. In addition to the great things I learned while doing research for examples of the archetypes being taught, I was surprised by how much impact that knowledge made on the rewrites of my existing scripts. This will serve me well going forward in script work and character development. Dialogues and narratives will be greatly enhanced as well.

It was pointed out that this class would be useful in terms of the writer's observations of himself and others in fiction and real life. That is very true. In that regard, Pamela Jaye Smith's instructions have been life changing for me. I recommend this course to any and all for the writing and personal growth learning to be found here.

My thanks to Savvy Authors and Pamela Jaye Smith for such a great learning experience.
