The roots of the heroic archetype, and the accompanying dramatic journey, stretch far back into the annals of human history – a framework that has changed very little across millennia.
And for good reason.
Today, we present a short video lesson by Matthew Winkler that breaks down the hero’s journey – the basic structure of almost every story we humans continue to enjoy creating and consuming.
But it isn’t just the framework that’s important. Matthew also has a parting lesson for you, and it’s one that should come in very useful for you as a creative writer.
Because every day, in even the smallest of ways, your own series of heroic journeys – and those of the people around you – play out. Learn to look for them, and inspiration will never be far away.
Enjoy the video. 🙂
