Hero Archetype

Carol Pearson, in her books about the hero within and the hero's journey, she states:

"Everyone who takes a journey is already a hero."

"The journey is fundamentally about metamorphosis."

Is the hero/heroine in your story embarking on a journey and heading for a metamorphosis?


In Christopher Vogler's book, he quotes the motto over the door of Carl Jung's house:

"Summoned or not, the god will come."

Sometimes characters for our writing do the same thing...pop up, summoned or not.
