*Brief little side note before you dig into this: This piece is going to reference a great deal of work from the mythologist Joseph Campbell, who is widely known for The Hero’s Journey. And while I can proudly say I’m a gigantic Campbell nerd, John Romaniello is a true Campbell expert who has written on the topic a million times over.
It would be folly of me to try and explain the importance of The Hero’s Journey when you can just click over and read it from one of the world’s foremost experts on the topic. So go read what he’s got to say, and come back.
THE CALL TO ADVENTURE.
I think the first message I got about it was in April.
