The Hero’s Journey

Please check out this video.  It’s probably the best explanation of The Hero’s Journey out there.

The comments following the video raise some interesting questions.

Does The Hero’s Journey apply to 100% of the population, or only 50%.  Does The Heroine have a (different) journey all of her own?

And what about the characters in Game of Thrones?

Hmmm.  Got a lot of thinking to do on this beautiful warm summer’s day.
