Everyone agrees that storytelling is important. They just aren’t sure how to go about it. The skill seems so elusive.

Either it feels too intuitive or too prescriptive; like it was written by a bot.

Some say you either “have it”, whatever that elusive “it” is, or you don’t, and that’s all there is to it.

I don’t think so.

No one is a born storyteller.

Anyone can learn though, and this video should give you a leg up on it.

This is about a certain kind of short story that can help you make your world more desirable for the right kind of person.

It leaves room for your intuition, but gives it a track to run on. So anyone should have some productive fun with it. It works well in the “real” world, too!

You might want to watch this a couple of times through until the structure sinks in, but when it does, you should find the story of your value coming through loud and clear.

Don’t be surprised if it works quite a bit faster than you had expected.

      Walking home from school in the 2nd grade, a stray dog followed me. When I got to the back door, mother greeted me. “Mommy, mommy, this doggy followed me home. Whenever she started walking away, I said, ‘here doggy, here doggy’and she followed me. Can we keep her mommy? Please? Please?”
      My mother – who didn’t want pets, couldn’t resist my story. She allowed me to name her, and “Dot” was our family dog for many years.
      My observation is that EVERYONE is a born storyteller. The problem is when we get educated, we focus more on facts and less on narrative. That’s when we lose the gift of storytelling.
