The Writer's Journey

The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler

A how-to-write book.

Has some useful stuff about elements from the hero's journey and how they can be applied to writing your own work. A little weak in the application side; it analyzes how final stories have them, but less about how to figure out what's missing and what element would help.

Still some interesting stuff.  Discussion of how character types can shift.  And how they can apply to different genres.
