What makes a hero?

A really powerful look into the most popular heros, and what makes them that way. How a story is built around them. I love this video. Whenever I’m stuck in a novel, I watch it and become inspired again, or find my lost train of thought.

  1. Great Video,

    “What makes a hero” is a really interesting topic. I love how he connects the idea that we are human just like the “heroes” we read about and we face the same formula of events, trials, and changes in our own lives. This is what makes fiction so wonderful to read…it provides so much we can learn from!

    Thank you for sharing!
