April 28, 2012 – Mythic Tools for Storytellers

The classic stories are still around because they work. Learn to use the time-tested story tools of Mythic Themes, Mythic Statements, Archetypes, and Symbols in your stories.

  • You’ll become familiar with many powerful Mythic Themes besides the Hero’s Journey, and how to use them.
  • What three Mythic Statements do you need to say specifically and up-front in words, without subtext or symbolism?
  • Align your characters with the ArchePaths [Warrior, Monk, Scientist, Magician, Lover] to create unique, dynamic, believable people.
  • Use the three levels of Symbolism to convey the deeper and wider meanings of your story.

Mythic Tools can help you create mythic stories that will be treasured and remembered for a long, long time.
