QUOTE
I want to go back to cliches and use that as a segue into a new topic: Monomyth. One thing that really irks me is when people complain about how Star Wars and Harry Potter have the same plot. I find it profound and ignorant at the same time how someone can recognize the archetype but then be outraged by it.


There are three parts to the myth, each with it's own sections. It's important to note that sometimes individual sections can appear out of order or not at all.

I) Departure
a. Call to Adventure
b. Refusal of the Call
c. Supernatural Aid
d. Crossing the First Threshold
e. Belly of the Whale

II) Initiation
a. Road of Trials
b. Meeting the Goddess
c. Woman as Temptress
d. Atonement with the Father
e. Apotheosis
f. Ultimate Boon

III) Return
a. Refusal of Return
b. The Magic Flight
c. Rescue from Without
d. Crossing the Return Threshold
e. Master of Two Worlds
f. Freedom to Live

I've been on a literary theory kick of late and I have really become invested in the idea that understanding and utilizing the Monomyth can make my writing better. I want to know if any of you use the same approach. I'm willing to discuss any of the pieces (as best I understand them from Joseph Campbell's explanations) but I'm hoping more of you chime in too because I feel like I'd be able to cement this knowledge more after a discussion.


This is interesting to break down Masquerade. The whole idea intrigues me, and it really has made me take a look at my writing a little more.
