The Hero’s Journey

Posted by

_cpzh4: Remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books they used to have at the library? Well, let’s do something like that.

We’re going to tell the journey of a storybook hero. We won’t give him/her a name, or go into specifics like that. We’re not going to get bogged down on the details. Try to use archetypes and motifs that are recognizable, but it is up to you whether or not you want to make a comment on the accepted norms of fairy tales by breaking them.

Start with a picture from Flickr. It can be random or deliberate, as long as it’s not All Rights Reserved. Narrate the step of his/her journey, adding what details you will, but staying true to the plot. Comment on the step prior with a link to your step, so there is a clean series of narrative frames, each linking to the next. If there be multiple paths, then we will have a tree of potential outcomes for our hero. You may also start a new story if you wish.

Also, please post a link to the step prior so that a reader can backtrack if they get lost or stumble upon a middle step.

In summary the strict limitations:
-You MUST have an image
-Narrate in first person so gender can be generally overlooked.
-Post a link to the step prior for backtracking purposes., _cre1l: Visual, _d415a: http://blog.houseoftheabsurd.net/archives/150, _d5fpr: Tempest, _clrrx: 45, _cyevm: , _cztg3: , _d180g: 230
