The Virgin’s Promise: Writing Stories of Feminine Creative, Spiritual, and Sexual Awakening
The Virgin’s Promise demystifies the complexities of archetypes and clearly outlines the steps of a Virgin’s Journey to realize her dream. The Virgin’s Promise describes structural beats that feel incredibly familiar but have not been illustrated in any other screenwriting book. It explores the yin and yang of the Virgin and the Hero as they journey to embrace their power as individuals, and includes a practical guide to putting this new theory into action.
“For a work as thought provoking and even profound as this, The Virgin’s Promise is thankfully accessible and not for a minute esoteric during its read. The icing on the cake is Hudson’s style and use of language. At once simple and yet complex. The Virgin’s Promise is a bit like the perfect haiku: Sparse and philosophical.”
— Deepa Mehta, screenwriter/producer of Fire, Earth, Water and Bollywood/Hollywood
“The Virgin’s Promise is a groundbreaking and profound addition to the canon on screenplay structure. With great clarity Kim Hudson offers a method for understanding and writing successful screenplays about characters whose dramatic journey follows an internal path to discovery and acceptance of their true identity in spite of formidable obstacles. I am certain that many important and successful new films will be inspired by this book.”
— Sharon McGowan, producer of Better Than Chocolate and The Lotus Eaters
“A story well told can change the world. Hudson unlocks the secret to writing stories of self fulfillment in this lovely and inspiring book. A must read for all storytellers and screenwriters.”
— Mireille Soria, producer of Ever After
Kim Hudson’s personal journey and scholarly inquiry combined to develop this theory of the Virgin’s archetypal structure. Over the past four years Kim has given workshops and classes in the Vancouver area on the Virgin’s Promise.
