:) It's the original Hero's Journey, isn't it! I really enjoyed those lectures, I'm looking forward to seeing the ones covering 5-8.

Hero's Journey is very, very simplified ;) but certainly useful for certain purposes.

Maybe "Making of a Hero", then. :) A prequel to great deeds.

Did you know that there are several journeys as depicted by Campbell? Unfortunately, I have yet to read the book...

No, it's been on my list forever as well...maybe we should do a read-along sometime. :)

I'm amusing myself by doing a compare-and-contrast on Telemachus and Marcus Yallow...

Believe or not, many writers use it to plot out their stories :)
