Tapping Into the Power of Myths

Dive Into Writing Series

Too many storytellers ignore the power of myths, considering them archaic and no longer relevant for today’s readers. But if you ignore myths you ignore a gold mine of compelling story ideas. Ideas that will elevate your story into a truly compelling read.

Myths still resonate today as they resonated with our ancestors. Use them to add the power and depth missing from your stories.

What we’ll examine:

  • What is myth and why does it matter
  • Difference between Myth and Fairy Tales
  • The 4 functions of Myth
  • Understanding the Hero’s Myth
  • Relationship between Myth and Ritual

Myths meet our need to find significance, to understand the mysterious. To find out who and what we are. they conduct us across difficult thresholds of transformation that demand a change in the patterns not only of conscious but also of our deepest beliefs. Myths can drive the actions of your characters and connect them to the the most profound motivations.
