Seriously Write: Archetypes for Your Hero by Marji Laine

#SeriouslyWrite #WritingTips #FictionalHeroes

Author Marji Laine did a number of posts on her blog explaining the archetypes of heroes and heroines. I loved her analysis of the different types and her comparison to various book and movie characters. Today, she’s sharing an overview of these types of heroes on the Seriously Write blog. On November 20, Marji will be back, giving equal opportunity to heroines.

As an author of heartwarming historical and contemporary romance, Sandra Ardoin engages readers with page-turning stories of love and faith. Rarely out of reach of a book, she's also an armchair sports enthusiast, country music listener, and seldom says no to eating out.
