I’m writing a story and trying to implement the Hero’s Journey (monomyth) structure to it. Could I ask for some help? Here it is, roughly. 1. A young woman lives her normal life - she has a hobby, a male best friend, a female best friend, works in a company (THE ORDINARY WORLD). 2. Someone suggests to her that her boyfriend cheats on her (CALL TO ACTION) - she doesn’t believe, refuses (REFUSAL OF THE CALL). 3. Someone suggests to her to quit the company and begin her freelance career (CALL TO ACTION) - she refuses (REFUSAL OF THE CALL). 4. She has a minor conflict in her work that results in that she loses her job. 5. She discovers that her boyfriend is cheating with her female best friend. She loses both of them. Only her male best friend becomes her support (MEETING WITH THE MENTOR). 6. She is forced to move to other city, to find new job, new boyfriend and new life (CROSSING THE THRESHOLD). 7. She tries to cope in a new environment (TESTS, ALLIES AND ENEMIES). 8. She meets with a special man (how would that fit into monomyth? - APPROACH?). 9. He turns out to be a mysterious person and takes her for a dangerous journey, they are chased (THE ORDEAL?) 10. They fall in love, she is brave enough to cope with his dangerous life (THE REWARD?). My questions: 1. Does this structure seams firm? 2. Could there be several Call to Actions (nr 2 and 3)? 3. The call to action isn’t accepted by the hero because the mentor convinces the hero, but because the hero is left with no choice. Is that OK with the monomyth? 4. Isn’t the main matter of the story (meeting with special man - nr 8) introduced too late? Isn’t there too much of the introduction? Doesn’t this break up into two different stories instead of being one? 5. The most important - shouldn’t the newly met special man became her MENTOR instead of her best male friend? Could she just have two mentors? If not, who would be the newly met special man to her in terms of the monomyth (an ally? - I think not)? 6. Do points 8, 9 and 10 fit into the structure of monomyth? 7. I have no concept for the last three parts, THE ROAD BACK, THE RESURRECTION and RETURN WITH THE ELIXIR. Can someone help with some rough ideas? Thanks.
