Monomyth Monday: Clearly I’m Stuck at Level 3

As in all great journeys, sometimes the hero(ine) refuses the call. That’s what I’m doing right now. I was supposed to write a nice story following the format of Joseph Campbell’s concept of the monomyth, but I’ve been partying instead. 20 year high school reunions only come around once in a lifetime. So, instead, I have attached a video that illustrates the concept of the monomyth and outlines some of the steps using examples from recent cinema, The Matrix, Harry Potter and Star Wars. So, watch up and get up to speed, maybe you’ll join me next week when there really, really will be an original story posted here. Thanks for your patience. May the force be with you.

This is also a response to The Daily Post’s Weekly Writing Challenge
