Wanna’ become a Good Storyteller?
Wanna’ become a good storyteller? Here, five quick steps. Catch!
First memorize it like crazy, then forget it for a while. It will have found a hiding place for itself in your deeper brain.
Second make attempts to tell it from memory in your own words, like a casual chat. You will feel like and become OWNER of the new version.
Third, tell it from the perspective of one of the characters in the story. If there are no characters other than you then let any inanimate object, say a chair, from the story tell the story. It’ll help you enhance the drama when you really tell the story next time.
Four, have someone else tell you or read the original or your new script. You will discover new areas where impact and engagement can be increased.
Five, go all out when you tell it. Live your dream-delivery, model your storytelling hero. Enjoy. Unleash yourself unashamedly. Stories are meant to be told so they inspire and motivate others so why hold yourself back? Go! Fly! Shine!
Five point five, buy the HeART of the STORY from Amazon.
