Description:

The "Hero's Journey" is a familiar storytelling technique, and this backbone of narrative storytelling can be found in a huge number of popular stories, from Ghostbusters to When Harry Met Sally. Learning this backbone, how to recognize its individual beats, when/how to deviate, and how to adapt the story beats for individual genres (and subgenres) can take your improvised storytelling from "zero" to "hero" in no time.
