James N. Frey, "The Key: How To Write Damn Good Fiction Using The Power Of Myth"

In The Key
, Frey takes his no-nonsense, "Damn Good" approach and applies it to Joseph Campbell's insights into the universal structure of myths. Myths, says Frey, are the basis of all storytelling, and their structures and motifs are just as powerful for contemporary writers as they were for Homer. The Key
is designed as a practical step-by-step guide for fiction writers and screen writers who want to shape their own ideas into a mythic story.
