This Month's Topic: The Hero’s Journey: "The Hero Returns Home". There is a formula for penning the stories that pull at our hearts, cause us to achingly hope for the unlikely, and cause us to cry, hug, jump in elation when the impossible thing is accomplished... and it’s called The Hero’s Journey Narrative. We will be exploring it in stages, learning the nuances and power of each element.
This month, we'll explore "The Hero Returns Home." When the dragon has been slayed, when the main character and helpers have emerged from The Pit battered but victorious, the transformation from ordinary character to Hero takes place and the journey home is one of power and significance. If crafted well, this is the part of the story that makes us cry.
