it was amazing
Read from May 22 to July 03, 2012

A hero wanders. A hero suffers. A hero returns.

Have you ever wondered why such a simple structure has worked for longer than we've had written language? The answer lies within these pages.

I've been searching for the answers to why for a very long time, and through the research presented here I found myself floored with the answers every three chapters. This is so good, I almost wanted to covet it like Gollum and The One Ring.

This is a must read for every aspiring filmmaker, youtube content provider, singer, songwriter, novelist, blogger, aspiring marketing guru anything that is intrinsically tied to storytelling.
