I blogged about him in 2014. In 2016 Casey Gerald gave a tedtalk "the gospel of doubt" that npr says went viral then today I noticed Penguin Random House published his memoir in 2018... He was on my radar because of a new post I was writing -what I didn't know is he's on the world's radar too. I wonder what they have planned for him.
Happy Valentine's Day @richardmurray !
I don't believe the hero's journey conforms to all stories. Children's books come to mind - I just wrote a story about my grand"pup" and communication. And that story is more of a fable and doesn't follow the path of the hero's journey.
NOW my novel, "Sleeping with a D-Man" follows the Hero's Journey's format at every step. So, I'd say most novels loosely follow the structure.
Now here's where my personal belief comes in. Whenever, I'm experiencing and going through a particularly stressful period in my life. I take a step back and map out the points and highlights on the Hero's Journey plotline to see exactly where I am in the journey. I want to see if the prize is on horizon. :D
Happy Valentine's day @Mel Hopkins :)

good point, fables do not fit the hero's journey or any story that does not involve a guide or a maturing lead hero character
Interesting insight into the life of Mel:)
