Shhh, I have a secret.
If you’re taking the on-line class I’m teaching about the hero’s journey for the AskAnAuthorAll loop for Romance Writers of America members, you can get ahead of the game.
I’ve been watching my favorite romances all week, and one that I’ll be using extensively is FRENCH KISS with Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline. I LOVE that movie.
Other’s I’ll use as examples are WORKING GIRL with Melanie Griffith and Harrison Ford and WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING with Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman. These aren’t the only movies, but if you watch one of the three before Monday you’ll go to the head of the class 🙂
If you’re a member of RWA and aren’t a member of the AAA-All loop, to join send an email to AskAnAuthorAllfirstname.lastname@example.org and be prepared to give them your RWA number when they respond.
If you’re not a member, keep visiting MSW as well as my own blog (when it’s up and running–you’ll hear it hear first) because I’ll be talking a lot about the hero’s journey and what it means to good stories in the coming months.
