2 The story begins with Dorothy living a boring and depressing life.
The Ordinary World The story begins with Dorothy living a boring and depressing life. This is where the hero’s home environment where his friends and family are located. The story starts here so that the separation stands out.

3 Call To Adventure Dorothy is looking for excitement but soon finds herself in in as she is swept away from her world by a tornado. In the call to adventure the hero outgrows her old world. Everything is no longer is the same.

4 Refusal to the Call Before Dorothy is picked up by the wind, Professor Marvel persuades her to refuse the call and return home. He shows the many dangers of the journey. Forces cause Dorothy into an adventure when and is brought to Oz. Often the hero feels that she has it "too good" and refuses to give up all that they currently have. This often results in the hero being forced to move on.

5 Crossing the Threshold
Dorothy is now out of Kansas and she is in Oz. Dorothy now sets out on the yellow brick road and begins her adventures. The hero ventures into an unknown world which breaks tradition, and the hero meets some dangerous presence.

6 Belly of The Whale Dorothy is joined by people that she meets. Her new friends are the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and Lion. She makes enemies with the rude talking trees in the orchard and the witch. She passes a number of tests - freeing Scarecrow from the nail, helping Cowardly Lion deal with his fear, and oiling Tin Soldier. Once the hero has crossed the threshold, her old world is destroyed. She moves into a world of darkness (the belly of the whale) and will not come out until she is ready to return. Often times there will be a "deepest part" to the belly.

7 Road of Trials The mean tree orchards wont let Dorothy go through the forest, monkeys try to delay their quest to the witch, and flowers that mask you tired and the guards in the place of the witch are all set-up for the road of trials. Hero experiences miraculous tests or ordeals on the road of trials. There are usually several incidents that affect the hero at this point.
