November 26 Activity: Depict the hero’s journey in your memoir.
Perhaps you have never thought of yourself as a hero—but in fact you are one. It is the energy of your hero’s journey that has impelled you to write a memoir. Every memoir tells the story of a hero’s journey. It is the story of how the main character (usually you) was beset by difficulties and has survived. In short, every memoir is necessarily a hero’s journey
Look at it this way: there is a problem that you have resolved and that trajectory of resolution provides the narrative of your memoir, the crisis of your memoir.
