Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I’ve been writing for some time now and I thought that I was writing effectively. Vogler’s book, The Writer’s Journey, hit me like a ton of bricks. Journey is my new writer’s Bible. It is, in my opinion, a well-constructed, thoroughly illustrated and copiously cited blueprint for how to craft the best story possible. Like many mentors, Vogler describes the major components of a great story. For me, it was his extensive use of examples from classic movies that made the whole Journey palpable. He showed me ‘how’ not just told me ‘what.’ On first reading, the journey can be a bit overwhelming. To clarify the process, I made my own outline as I read which I applied to my current project. What a revelation. I plan to compare my outline to my current work periodically. After I have learned to understand and apply some of the process, I will re-read Journey and probably realize a completely new set of understandings. For The Writer’s Journey, ten stars is not enough. Jeff Bailey, author of The Defect.
