I'm Bloggin' Today: About Heroes
Did you know there are eight different hero archetypes for Romances?
I may have known somewhere deep in my subconscious, but never gave it much thought until I was writing heroes in my stories. What I didn’t realize was how similar Hollywood depicts those hero types in these categories. You will see that I used many images over several decades to illustrate this. (Oh, the other criteria- they had to be gorgeous!) Let me say I know that some of these heroes could be placed in a couple of different categories- I used the one that I believe most fits, considering the entire character arc.
What I want to know is what your favorite type of hero is? And why? Please comment below! I would love to use this information as I decide what kind of hero to create some new stories I have kicking around!
I would like to thank http://www.tamicowden.com/heroes.htm for providing the hero descriptions!
