What a nifty post that zeros in on ways to make our storytelling better -- based on science. 


The author, Ben Parr @benparr, the author of Captivology (oooh, nice new word!) shares with us 7 things to focus on if we want to capture someone's attention. Like:

  • Automaticity
  • Rewards
  • Mystery
  • Acknowledgement


Parr explains what he means by each element. After reading the article, ask yourself questions like,

  1. "How can I bring my mystery into my stories?"
  2. "What are ways I can acknowledge people either in my stories, or with my stories?"
  3. "How can I craft my story so a reward is included?"
  4. "What phrase do I want to repeat to have stick in people's minds?"


You'll think of others, too as you read about all 7 elements. This will be fun to do. Get started right away.
