The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, 3rd Edition

The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, 3rd Edition - Christopher Vogler, Michele Montez Perhaps better for screenwriters than novelists, there is still much to admire in this work, especially since I'm an admirer of Joseph Campbell's work, to which Vogler acknowledges a huge debt. It's thought-provoking, especially in terms of plot. As I say, perhaps not wonderful for the prose writer, since almost all examples are taken from film. I love the exploration of archetypes -- a great leaping off place for any writer.
