J. R. R. Tolkien on Fairy Tales, Language, the Psychology of Fantasy, and Why There’s No Such Thing as Writing “For Children”

J. R. R. Tolkien on Fairy Tales, Language, the Psychology of Fantasy, and Why There’s No Such Thing as Writing “For Children” | GoodStories246 | Scoop.it
"Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else ... may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage
Joseph McCaleb's insight:

Tolkien guides us to see Good Stories as “Recovery (which includes return and renewal of health) is a re-gaining—regaining of a clear view… to clean our windows; so that the things seen clearly may be freed from the drab blur of triteness or familiarity—from possessiveness.”

A prominent author tells brands that social media will not help their bottom line. Marketing leaders think differently.

As usual, these things are never in black and white.  Looking for a direct, linear relationship between social media 'marketing' and the bottom seems equally flawed.

Joseph McCaleb's insight:

"What storytellers do...empower our moral imagination to envision how the world could work better. In other words, they help us mediate between the ideal and the real by cultivating the right balance of critical thinking and hope. Truth and falsehood belong to this mediation, but it is guided primarily by what we are made to believe is real.

Story colored glasses: My left ear

Story colored glasses: My left ear | GoodStories246 | Scoop.it
As you know if you read this blog regularly (or as regularly as I write it, anyway), I have strong opinions about some things. For example:
I believe that storytelling should be seen not as an expert skill but as an innate capacity available to all human beings. 
I believe that the benefits of listening to stories and making sense of them should not depend on outside analysts, but should be available to groups of people working together for their own benefit. 
I believe that stories should be seen not as commodities to be consumed but as the lifeblood of families, communities, organizations, and societies. 
I have spent fifteen years working toward these goals, and I am passionate about them. But I've also thought a lot about whether being passionate about a goal is a help or a hindrance in meeting that goal. This essay is about those thoughts.

You and I may not need to make people laugh the way a comedian must, but for us we could frame the question more something like "how do you make people feel something? How do you make them care?" As for being funny, Bill says the key is having the ability to tell stories.
