Source: https://writinggoals.com/pimp-my-fiction-free-book

Michael Hauge goes one step further by saying the best heroes must achieve two compelling goals: an outer journey of accomplishment; and a deeper, inner journey of transformation and fulfillment. Again, a Google search will show you how Michael presents his unique approach to mastering these two essential components of your story.
