Writing Tip: Introduction to The Hero’s Journey

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.

Consider yourself warned: I write books about rebels. I'm also a postergirlz for readergirlz, a literary advisory group for teens. Who knew going back to the teenage years would be so rewarding?
