Let Mything Link help you thread your way out of the labyrinth we writers often find ourselves in as we develop and write our story. You will be introduced to archetypal patterns, the structure of the Hero’s Journey, character archetypes, and the complexity of the human drama found in myth and all enduring stories. Mything Link: Keys to Successful Story is designed to help writers access those unchanging constants of the human condition and perceive the forces underlying human activity captured by myths so that you may improve the quality, relevance and cohesiveness of your story.
