Try this place. http://www.gabrielleluthy.com/articles.htmlI especially recommend Beyond Alpha -- A Look at 8 Hero Archetypes http://www.likesbooks.com/eight.htmlAnd its counterpoint on Heroine Archetypes http://www.likesbooks.com/78.html
Brenda, have you tried Holly Lisle's page? Fantastic stuff. I have a link on my blog.
http://www.deannacarlyle.com/articles/springboard.html has some good ideas
Christopher Vogler's book on the Hero's Journey called "The Writer's Journey" has a lot of information on the archetypes. It's one of my favorite books.
I like Building Believable Characters (McCutcheon, Writers Digest) and Creating Characters: How To Build Story People (D. Swain). Also used The Writer's Guide To Character Traits (Edelstein). Vogler and Campbell's books also sit on my shelves...
Darn it. I would but I let a friend borrow a bunch of my writing books and I never received them back. And wouldn't you just know that now when I need the title my memory has failed me. Bah. Sometimes it's tough being a Lumpy.The Lumpy
Thanks, guys!!!Poor Lumpy :(
