The first time I saw this was in my screenwriting class when we discussed “The Writers Journey”. I’ve blogged about this book before. I think it’s genius. The concepts in the book are not new, the writer, Christopher Vogler, gives plenty of credit where it is due. All the same I was sort of fascinated with the way that the story elements discussed could be applied for any story, traditional or modern. If JK Rowling is not familiar with these theories then she must be a genie ’cause the HP series drips with them.
