Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Robin Harper:
For Writers: Let’s talk about Myths. How do you create the myths in your novels? World building is an arduous task, but the stories that exist in that world are just as important to the culture, religion (should there be one), and society. My personal favorite Myth Helper is Joseph Campbell, His books have given me many ‘Aha!’ moments when it comes to building a story that inspires and changes the protagonist.
What are your sources/inspirations that you reach for when you’re putting the myth(s) together?
