The Hero’s Journey Series

Today’s post about Joseph Campbell and the hero’s journey will be the first of an extensive series. This first post will cover why writer’s should, and shouldn’t, read Campbell’s work as a guide for their writing. Some of the topics of future posts will cover the psychological model for creating characters, each stage of the hero’s journey (according to Campbell), as well as gender issues. I will also be doing a series of posts of examples of the hero’s journey in films from various genres. I love this stuff, so prepare yourself for a lot of it 🙂
