In The Writer’s Journey, Christopher Vogler tells us that, “At heart, despite its infinite variety, the hero’s story is always a journey. A hero leaves [their] comfortable, ordinary surroundings to venture into a challenging, unfamiliar world. It may be an outward journey to an actual place; a labyrinth, forest or cave, a strange city or country, a new locale that becomes an arena for conflict with antagonistic, challenging forces. But there are also many stories that take the hero on an inward journey, one of the mind, the heart, the spirit. In any good story, the hero grows and changes, making a journey from one way of being to the next: from despair to hope, weakness to strength, folly to wisdom, love to hate, and back again” (7).
