Cindy, it is so difficult to converse over the 'net, as you already know. No apologies needed :) . Thank you for your wise advise - you are absolutely correct and I hope this post will advise others. when exploring the unconscious, one never knows what might come to the surface, both positive and ne...

Cindy, you are most kind in your advise.-:) I'm aware this is not a site for counseling/therapy, and I would never share my intimate experiences on a public site. My purpose in joining JCF is to learn more about the Hero's Journey - to learn from JC's work. I know you have certain responsibilities a...

Hi Cindy, Just wondering--have you studied any books by published authors that specifically address writing memoirs? Thanks for surfing the net - I do it constantly. I took many courses with Reader's Digest for about 3 years - the nineties. I have several books on writing in my library by several re...

Hey Nadie. As to the above my apologies if I was somewhat nebulous. I was not referring to the JCF at all. I just meant concerning your own private thoughts and feelings being open to anyone else's criticisms that's all. It's very easy to be wounded by someone's well intentioned suggestions, much l...

Hi James. Well, I'm well on my way in rewriting my chapters and already getting praise. As for Clemsy and Cindy (our moderator), I appreciate them as well. Clemsy reached out to me years ago and helped me so much with dilemma at the time, as well as Tree Hugger - I don't know if she's still here or ...

James, you have been a light at the end of a dark tunnel. Thank you for your spirit of gratitude. The gift passed has been passed to me; God willing, I will have an opportunity to do the same. I have spent the whole day on JCF site, and I have missed it. There is so much knowledge and wisdom here th...

Good Lord James!!! What you just wrote is packed with knowledge and wisdom. I've printed it so I can absorb all the nuggets you've given me. I know you're a modest person, but I really must tell you what impact your post has made on me. :D I remember Clemsy. He was so very helpful with a message I p...

Hello Clemsy. thank you for the reminder; it is very reassuring, "The hero's journey is an archetype, so it will find its way out of you as a storyteller."

Thank you for the encouragement, it means a lot to me.

Have a lovely week:-) Nadie

Thank you James for a warm welcome back. I've been busy writing my memoir. I joined Scribeophile for critiques before sending my book to an editor. I'm back because this is where it all began for me, Joseph Campbell. Thanks for the links - very helpful, so I'll spend the day reading them. I purchase...

Books/Films based on Campbell's Work

I've written my memoir about my journey (hero), and it's been a difficult write because of my horrid childhood. I am in the midst of revising/rewriting it and have been advised of the following: "I sense that there are two Nadie's. The un-reconstituted one and the more beautiful, self-designed one. ...

He relates to that myth as well, along with the Vikings. I can see you turning switftly on your horse and riding off in...

Cliff, I, too, love this thread. One that has intrigued me most, personal myth, however, I had to put mine on the backburner for a spell (I think???, so as to not sound presumptous), which I will elaborate on later. But first, I would like to say "we" ALWAYS love to hear your stories. Please do tell...

Thanks Martin for your kind reply. Yes, I suppose I am looking for a method that allows me to swallow the demon – great insight! The bigger the demon you’re able to swallow, the more energy it will give to you lead me to research several of JC’s books, including The Hero With A Thousand Faces, a tre...
