It’s all her fault. Yup. PJ Hoover. PJ is one of my critique buddies. She happened to mention The Hero’s Journey, when I shared my plotting outline method. She even went so far as to share her plot structure. And because I enjoy her writing so much, I decided to try this method.
Of course I had to find out whether there was a YouTube video of The Hero’s Journey…and guess what I found? A video of Christopher Vogler, creator of The Writer’s Journey for screenwriters, describing The Hero’s Journey for the movie, The Matrix. I haven’t watched this movie, so if you’ve seen it, let me know if you liked it. In any event, if you want a quick synopsis of The Hero’s Journey, watch this.
