The hero’s journey is already in your story DNA. It’s what makes you respond instinctively to some books . . . and not respond to others. But to use the journey as a writer, you must extract it and unravel it and look at it under a microscope. If you answer this call to adventure, you’ll gain a true understanding of the hero’s journey—the underlying structure of all successful plots. You’ll see how the journey plays out in book after book—from picture books to novels—and you’ll discover what’s working in (or missing from) your own work.
