The Case of the Monomyth (single story)

The case of of the Monomyth…it sounds so Sherlock Holmes-y!

Well, my dear Watson, the monomyth says that every hero’s journey is a variant of a single journey. That means that Frodo, Hercules, Katniss, Harry Potter and [you name another] all had the same journey (…more or less). In fact, they may all be variants of the same hero.

Interesting right?

Since Camp NaNoWriMo is only a month away, I thought it appropriate to share this semi-outline semi-philosophy with you.



“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
