I’m thrilled to announce that The Mythic Guide to Characters is here!
I began planning this book in the summer of 2012, after spending five years studying the workings of the unconscious mind. As a professional academic, I had become fascinated with how the unconscious drives so much of human behavior.
This gave me the idea of designing a new approach to writing characters, one that is based on the concept of “layers.”
This method starts with the unconscious mind, which is the first and deepest layer of each character, and moves outward. The end result is characters who are driven by longings and fears that they aren’t consciously aware of… just like real people.
