"The brain contains billions and billions of neurons. These cells communicate with one another by releasing small endogenous chemical messengers, called neurotransmitters, into the synapse, where they are then taken up by specific receptors on neighboring cells. There are many types of neurotransmitters in the brain—what they have in common is that they are produced inside a neuron, released into the synapse, and then cause an excitatory or inhibitory effect on receptor cells, helping to propagate or downgrade action potentials."

What we say matters a great deal, but so does what we don’t say. There are times when you just can’t afford to clam up when called upon to contribute.
I love that this article is approaching storytelling skills from the field of improv -- because we receive a couple of good (maybe new) insights.
Like "whatever makes a memory a memory makes it interesting" and "know when to hold back."
Many of these are good common sense rules that can often be forgotten. And I just like that even though when you read closely, a lot of this material sounds familiar, the voice from the improv world makes me think about some of these tips in different ways. That is always a good thing!
Oh, and BTW -- it is hard to find good articles on story TELLING skills. There is always tons of stuff on story structure and story crafting. But live storytelling skills -- not so much. Another reason I doubly appreciate this article!
