How to Weave a Story that Instantly Captivates Your Audience

How to Weave a Story that Instantly Captivates Your Audience | i love a good story | Scoop.it
Most writers neglect the power of a story to captivate their audience immediately ... This is a quick article with several key messages. But the one that strikes me is that when crafting a story, the most interesting beginning that gets reader's hooked, is often found in the middle of the story. So true! And I love the example he uses to demonstrate this tip. Beginnings and endings of stories are always hard for those new to storytelling. Even veteran storytellers could benefit from the author's tip here. Think about your stories -- do they need an upgrade by exploring their middles and finding a more compelling opening?

"I hosted my first storytelling night about eight years ago. At the time, there were all sorts of open mic nights for comedians, musicians and poets, but nothing in the style of US storytelling nights such as The Moth where ordinary people stood up and told true tales about their lives. The humour, warmth and sadness in those stories made a human connection unlike any other art form I had experienced."Read the full article to find out how to set up your own storytelling event: - the venue - the storytellers - planning the night - overcoming nerves - after hours
