Jonny Mole:  "Stories are in our make-up. They help us interpret meaning, connect with people across generations, and articulate really complex stuff in easily digestible snippets. The advertising & media industries are built on their ability to tell compelling stories. Stories of love, stories of hate, and stories of redemption."

Interesting use of social media in storytelling. The creators of 'The Last Hours of Laura K' spent a crucial amount of time before the launch of the project creating online profiles to their characters and documenting Laura's last day on earth. Now it's the users' job to find the killer.

"Look how Transparent, House of Cards, and Orange is the New Black are being critically lauded and scooping up all kinds of major awards. And rightfully so. It's just a sign of what's happening and what's to come. Vimeo, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu -- those guys -- they're going to continue to function as studios for people making digital content and then there will be all the people making stuff independently. It's going to keep increasing exponentially I think, as people become more and more comfortable viewing content online and as more and more people discover they don't have to wait for a TV executive to give them permission to make a show."

Mike Vogel:  "Here’s a dilemma every transmedia producer faces… You discover a new storytelling platform–maybe you get in to their invite-only beta–and you create a story that uses the strengths of that platform. The platform gives you a powerful new way to express yourself interactively, but then something happens. Maybe the startup runs out of funding, gets acquired, or changes their business model. Suddenly the DNA of your story is no longer available to you. Your story can no longer be told."

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 16, 6:39 PM

Ffion Lindsay at Sparkol does another terrific job putting together 8 story structures any business can use, then gives us examples for each. Better yet, for each structure she shares with us what situations they are good for. Yay!


If you are looking to refresh your stories and just want to play with sharing your stories in different ways -- or are stuck not knowing how to tell one of your stories -- then grab this article.


If you use these other structures, you won't get stuck in the monomyth of the hero (a good thing).


Monomyth dangers

I have noticed one piece of language changing, however. That is the word "Monomyth". Mono means one or alone. Mono + myth means one myth. Joseph Campbell coined this term to refer to the Hero's story as the one all encompassing archetype for narratives. From there it morphed into also meaning a narrative common to all people. But it has a stranglehold on our storytelling, as if there are no other kinds of stories to tell.


Now the word is being used without question. Make sure you listen to the video in this article by Chimamanda Adichie on The Danger Of A Single Story.


The monomyth of the hero's journey is eclipsing other kinds of stories to tell. In the mad rush for business storytelling, the hero's journey is often touted as the only story to pay attention to. Stories of community, origin stories, how we do things, cautionary tales, and the like are neglected, but we are starving for them.


Anyway, enjoy playing with these structures and well done Ffion!
