The Hero's JourneyIt's been a while since I last wrote a writing tip.The Hero's Journey by Dedasaur
I've noticed that these notes have started circulating over the internet (the images too although they are not that great hahaha).
Today I've decided to talk about one of the most solid structure you can apply to your story.
It does not matter whether it's long or short, epic or comical, it always works somehow.
This theory, to be applied in scriptwriting, was developed by Christopher Vogler who analyzed a book by anthropologist Joseph Campbell called "The Hero with a thousand faces".
You'll find plenty of Vogler's graphs online but for my students and for myself I came up with a short silly comic of sorts. (Again the drawings are not that great).
So here's the Hero's Journey in 12 steps.
