The Writer & The Hero's Journey

Dear Fellow Writer,

Rob Parnell here - thanks for being a valued subscriber!

This week I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you about my new book, The Writer & The Hero's Journey.

It's really been a labor of love to put this new writing resource together. I regard this as my best, like most writers, because it's my most recent. But more. I'm feeling particularly proud of this book, I must admit. I think it really might be the one I'll be remembered most for!

Here's the exquisite cover:

Hero's Journey

This book is designed primarily for writers - or new writers - who desire a better understanding of ideal story structure. “The Writer and the Hero’s Journey” is a complete manual for fiction writing mastery. This book will change your writing life forever - for the better. Go here to purchase for less than one dollar.
Rob Parnell, Kindle bestselling author of over a dozen acclaimed writing manuals, brings you a unique book that examines the hero’s journey and its importance to you, the writer, and all your fiction writing, no matter which genre you specialize in.
Have you ever wanted to be able to structure a short story or novel around your character's hero/heroine? Then using Rob Parnell’s modern interpretation of "The Hero's Journey" as a template is a sure-fire way to create a popular bestseller!

Here's what this groundbreaking new course reveals:

Module One: Mindset of a Hero
Telling a compelling story means first establishing its parameters. Discover simple and effective ways to start a story that will always engender empathy from your reader. In this first module we examine the hero's character and motivation and the symbolic 'call to action', the hero’s metaphorical separation from the ordinary world, leading him/her to take the necessary plot arc to fulfill the hero’s agenda and reach his/her inner and outer goals.

Module Two: Emergence
In any good story, a character must transcend his/her normal existence and be tested. This is the only way to ensure growth - and eventual satisfactory plot resolution. In this module we discover the ‘rules’ on how this metaphorical transformation can and must begin at the quarter point of the hero's journey. There's a tried and true formula for this part of your writing and using solid, familiar examples, you’ll see how many great authors create this scenario.
Module Three: Road of Trials Writing is not just a way of entertaining readers, it is also a spiritual journey of enlightenment for the writer. At the midpoint in a story both the hero and the writer must be stretched to the limits of their imagination. In this module we explore the transformation of the hero and the writer at this crucial plot point. And how we can use simple guidelines to ensure the reader is transported by our story, its plot elements and our character arcs.

Module Four: Master of Worlds
The character's ultimate reward - and thereby the reader's sense of satisfaction - is based on the hero’s ability to overcome appropriate obstacles and achieve the agendas set out at the beginning of the story. In this module we learn how to structure and resolve character development. How you create endings that leave your reader gasping, crying, triumphant and begging for more! It's all part of the hero's journey.

* Each module is followed by practical exercises that will help strengthen your understanding of the hero’s journey and enable you to plan and execute brilliant story ideas with compelling characters.
* Throughout the course we look at examples from novels, movies and classic stories from all genres to illustrate the principles of the hero's journey - and how you can use them effectively in your own stories.
* We examine the importance of the hero’s journey in the context of writing, writers and in the metaphorical process of becoming a professional artist.
* The Major Arcana of the Tarot pack is revealed as an exact match for the hero’s journey. We learn what this means and what you can learn from it. Also, how to come up with fascinating characters and original story plots by using a humble Tarot pack.

* The author reveals the confidential secrets to his own writing success - so that you have practical examples you can apply to your own writer’s journey.

* And much more - all told with the style, panache and wit you'd expect from Rob Parnell, the ‘world’s foremost writing guru.’
Keep Writing!
