go-to source: Vogler

We all have our go-to sources:
Books, articles, and people
who delineate conventional wisdom
and open petals of beauty and truth
for our writing.

Vogler’s The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers
is a classic.
(one of the works I revisit often)

I’ve actually designed and teach
a course for teens around the book.
And every time I teach it,
the petals open bit more.

Important truth: Writers read.
And re-read.

It’s not a secret: masters of craft
(in any field)
read and re-read.

Letting it sink in.
Deeply.
So that the wisdom is a part of you
and your abilities.
