Every novelist, screenwriter and oral storyteller faces the challenge of creating original and exciting characters.

Worksheets are then included for writers to develop and map the lives of their own characters. * Excellent companion to the works of Joseph Campbell * The first and only book focusing heavily on the heroine's journey * Includes 45 black & white movie stills and line art depicting classic examples of each archetype Victoria Schmidt is a screenwriter for film and television.
