Here’s where I recommend a book that I’ve read and loved. This gives you something cool to read and, if you click through and buy anything in the next 24 hours, then I get a kickback from Amazon or Book Depository. Win/win.
Today’s recommendation is The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler. This is everything you need to know about the Hero’s Journey as it pertains to writing.
The Hero’s Journey as a concept was popularised by Joseph Campbell in The Hero With a Thousand Faces (on Amazon here and Book Depository here). While I have slogged my way through most of Campbell’s collected works I found Vogler’s distillation far easier to wrap my head around and, consequently, insanely helpful for improving my own writing.
If you’re keen to learn about the framework that birthed the likes of Star Wars, I’d highly recommend this book.
