Your Life is Not a Hero's Journey

Why are stories so purposefully structured whereas our reality is so often messy and chaotic? Why do characters have clear transformative arcs when our identities and personal journeys are so much more complex than that? It’s questions like these, and their implications that will be explored in this new series on stories vs. reality. In this second episode, Like Stories of Old will be examining the history of the heroic adventure, and the implications of projecting the hero’s journey on our own lives.
