on Hero

Probably the worst concept ever to hit the world of narrative, the idea of the Hero wrecks any meaningful discussion of story. Tied to his equally lame "Hero's Journey", this character is supposed to be the most important. But that is an entirely subjective determination. Dramatica's interpretation of a Hero is simple: the character who represents the personal point-of-view of the Main Character and serves the Protagonist function in the Overall Story. You don't have to make them both the same character. But when you do, a Hero is born.

Rid yourself of writer's block. Forever.
