Every Story Needs a Hero

Deciding who to make the hero is one of the hardest decisions to make. We’re all the hero of our own life story, right? Right. Except if you’re telling a story with an audience or desired outcome in mind, its best to make your audience the hero. Because if you’re audience can see themselves in the story, then you have nothing to sell (and that’s a good thing!). The hero is the central character of any story, and often the narrative is constructed or told through their perspective.
